Brazil, 500 reis, crowned-"S00" countermark (1663) on a Lisbon, Portugal, 400 reis of Joao IV, with milled edge, ex-Paulistana Collection. KM-36. 21.3 grams. A very strange coin of a hand-struck type but with milled edge (known to Brazilian collectors as "nueva orla," probably applied later to combat clipping, this specimen very similar to the KM Plate Coin), also with odd bulge and engrailing in the interior that might be related, some doubling on both sides, VF with light golden toning on fields, full countermark. Pedigreed to the Paulistana Collection.
