Mexico City, Mexico, cob 1 escudo, 1713J, mintmark oM, NGC MS 63, ex-1715 Fleet (designated on label). S-M30; KM-51.2 for type. 3.37 grams. Prior to the sea change in style in 1714, the mintmark on Mexican gold was universally oXM with the exception of some oM 1 escudos of the style of 1711-13, and almost all the known examples with visible dates have been 1712. This 1713-dated example is therefore quite rare. The date is clear, the mintmark and shield are bold and full and the cross nearly so, with dark red toning all over. NGC #4689302-003. From the 1715 Fleet.
