Lot of 12 of Potosi, Bolivia, cob 1/2R of Philip V, various dates (1702-1735), where visible. 17.1 grams total. Fascinating lot with several rare dates, interesting varieties and desirable pedigrees, but perhaps the most fascinating piece is a worn but axis-aligned 1702 that appears to be a Heart with its top stem missing due to stripping of its hole (call it a "broken heart"), a unique piece that went unnoticed by the consignor and we did not discover until this group-lot had already been assigned... hence the open-ended estimate! As for the rest of the group, there are no dogs (Fine+ overall, mostly nicely toned), but one has a crude hole. The 1712 is pedigreed to the Christensen auction of September 1983 (lot 1127); the 1718 and 1720 are pedigreed to the Paul Karon collection (Ponterio, March 1990), lots #1142 and 1144 respectively.
