Potosí, Bolivia, cob 4 reales, (1651-2)E, with 3 countermarks (very rare): 2 crown alone (common) on shield side and crown alone (rare) on cross side. S-P36, KM-17b. 12.7 grams. Fascinating coin with one bold and full countermark plus about half of another on the shield, weak but distinctively different countermark on cross, that side mostly flat and corroded but the shield side well detailed, with two big edge-splits. Pedigreed to the Louis Hudson collection. Recovered from: Capitana (Jesús María de la Limpia Concepción), sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
