Contemporary counterfeit in platinum of a Potosi, Bolivia, bust 8 escudos, Charles IV, 1804PJ, very rare. 26.7 grams. Slightly inaccurate design but of proper weight and size (as expected for platinum, which was not considered valuable in colonial days), somewhat grainy texture all over but no sign of wear, nicely toned.
