Bogota, Colombia, cob 1 real, Philip IV, assayer R (pillars type, 1651), PCGS XF40, ex-Eldorado. Restrepo-M24.1; S-B7; KM-15; CT-Type 237. 3.02 grams. Bold full assayer to right of nearly full but off-center shield-lions-castles below crown, the full pillars on the other side with motto P-LV-S above mintmark N, rainbow toning, small edge-split. The date is off the flan but attributed to 1651 by the design (according to Restrepo), which is curiously the first date of the pillars type and a whole year earlier than the beginning of the pillars-and-waves type at Potosi (both precipitated by the Potosi mint scandal). Pedigreed to the Eldorado Collection. PCGS #85760945.
