Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales, 1654P. S-M19; KM-45; CT-360. 24.1 grams. Very bold oMP, clear date, very nice full cross and nearly full shield, toned and high grade (XF details) but almost certainly salvaged from the Vergulde Draeck ("Gilt Dragon"), sunk in 1656 off Western Australia, with corrosion near edges. Pedigreed to the John Pullin collection, and pedigreed to the Ponterio auction of June 6, 1998 (lot #360), with lot-tag.
