Lima, Peru, cob 2 reales, 1660V, "Star of Lima" type (Series III), extremely rare, finest known. S-L5; KM-16; CT-842. 6.64 grams. This coin and the next lot represent the first specimens we have ever sold, and this one is as good as you can get, with full and bold crown and pillars enclosing PLVS above 2-star-2 above 660 above VLTRA, with L-V (no dots) to right and left, bold king's ordinal IIII in legend, the cross-lions-castles also full but struck off-center, nicely toned VF with old mark to left on pillars side. Curiously, the middle digit 6 of the date is punched over a 9 (rotated 6).
