Potosí, Bolivia, bust "1/2 real" (half-cut of a 1R), Charles IV, 1808PJ. 1.6 grams. A rare and curious example of "making small change" in its time, this neat cut is the better half of the deal, for it shows clearly the date and mintmark and assayer, worn and lightly corroded. Pedigreed to the "Coconut wreck" Research Collection. Recovered from: “Coconut wreck,” sunk ca. 1810 in deep water off Bermuda
