Rare Colombian Coin Certified by NGC

From the blurb about the coin:


Valued at two escudos, this gold coin is dated 1622.


So, do I send my two escudos to you directly, or is there a number I have to call to get it?

As one of only 5 known to exist, I would be very interested in knowing how the grade given was arrived at. Was it as simple as what Mr. Krah stated..."...nearly complete legends..." and "...strike is well-centered..."? What was the comparison, pictures of the other 4 and their appearance? How would one know what the coin was originally meant to show device -wise by the original minter?


With over 380 years having past since its date, and only 4 comparison coins, I am very curious about the given grade.


Thank you!

Spy, surely it's a subjective opinion as to the grade, but perhaps they've seen other hammered gold before. However, I understand where you're coming from.


I plan to submit some hammered gold to NGC within a couple months, along with some early milled coins, one of which, in my opinion, is a high grade uncirculated examle.
