Bogota, Colombia, cob 8 reales, 1702VA, extremely rare. S-B11; KM-12; Restrepo-M62-23. 25.1 grams. With choice full interiors (including line-dot-line borders) and bits of the legend, plus nice toning, and minimal corrosion (as it comes from a wreck), this bold AVF is one of only three specimens known, the other two permanently ensconced in museums (ANS and British Museum); therefore this is the only example available to the collectors of Colombian coins, who all need it and will appreciate its unusually high quality of visible detail and extreme rarity for the type and assayer (not just the date). Our estimate is but a fraction of its potential value.
