British Colony gold Counterstamped 5 Pounds ND (1758) AU50 NGC, KM11.4, Prid-1, Gordon-1 (this coin). Struck on a 1751 Peru 8 Escudos, counterstamped either side with a floriate "GR" within a circular indent. Perhaps the most challenging type of the West Indies cut and countermarked series to obtain, supposedly just 9 or 10 specimens known of which we have only handled two previously. Superbly bold, the countermark firm yet still allowing some of the original detail to peek through, the planchet warmly colored a rich aged-gold with apricot hints in the legend. An exceptionally rare and enticing piece of colonial history, and sure to become a centerpiece of a fine countermark collection. Ex. Caldecott & Byrne Collections. From the Anastasia Collection
