Broad flan with good full shield and cross but parts of the edge crude, full crown, clear sM assayer and 687 of date, one of only three known. (Note: This was previously a discovery coin, as it rewrote the references about assayer sM, which had been attributed to Jose Silvestre de Soto Maldonado of 1677 only but is now known to be Jose Marti(nes) of 1687 only.) Pedigreed to the Joseph Lasser collection (our Auction #1, lot 4) and Plate Coin #207 in the Tauler reference.
