Lima, Peru, cob 2 reales, "Star of Lima" type, 1659V, * over LIMA over 1659 in center, •V• to left, •2• to right, very rare. S-L5, KM-16, CT-841. 3.6 grams. Unexpectedly rare denomination for this already-rare unauthorized issue, and a nice specimen too with full and well-centered pillars with bold LIMA and date, full but slightly off-center cross, flat peripheries, AVF with some corrosion near edge as from unspecified salvage (probably the Consolación of 1681).
