Lima, Peru, 2 reales, Philip II, assayer R (Rincon) to left, motto PL-VSV-LT, legends HISPA / RVM, Grade 1. S-L1; KM-8; CT-481. 6.28 grams. Fully uncorroded and clearly circulated (F-VF), with full inner details and nearly full legends (broad flan), a highly unusual early coin for this wreck and clearly something that should have ended up in the famous "Research Collection," somewhat rare even if it weren't from a wreck, and popular as from the first coinage struck in South America. With Fisher tag and certificate #237741. Recovered from: Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida
