Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, (1650-1)O, with 2 countermarks on shield side (very rare): crown alone (very rare) and crowned (?). S-P35, KM-19b. 25.7 grams. A great coin for study, with both countermarks (borderless crown alone and crowned-something with dotted border) on full shield between P-O and 8-O, good full cross, nicely toned and with only a hint of corrosion. Pedigreed to the Louis Hudson collection. Recovered from: Capitana (Jesús María de la Limpia Concepción), sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
