Lot of 2 Lima, Peru, cob 4R, 1701H and 1739V, both possibly contemporary counterfeits. 12.5 and 12.6 grams. Clearly worn (VG-F) and good silver, so definitely circulated in their time, and they both "ring" and "feel" right, but the 1701 has porous surfaces (probably salvaged) and the numbers on the 1739 are slightly incorrect (maybe tooled long ago), so we sell them only as MOST LIKELY genuine, with a necessarily low estimate. Pedigreed to the Roberto Mastalir collection of Lima silver cobs.
