Lima, Peru, cob 8 reales, 1659V (Series II), Royal-die obverse (unique), with Guatemala sun-over-mountains countermark (Type II, 1839) on cross, KM Plate Coin. S-L5; KM-18.1; CT-264. 27.19 grams. Fully round and with nearly full cross-side details, the pillars side weaker but actually matching a known Royal die (see lot #986 in our Auction 12), still with full crown, L-*-M and date, plus full PHILIPPVS, richly old-toned and no worse than VF grade, the countermark XF or better, with drilled hole at bottom of cross as would be expected for a presentation piece (many of which, somehow, ended up in Guatemala), a premium piece in any case. Plate Coin in Spain, Portugal and the New World (2002), by Krause-Mishler (and in other editions).
