Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1651E, with crowned-O countermark (scarce) on cross, rare full brockage error. S-P36. 23.1 grams. Choice full cross and shield, full date, 2 assayers, but neatest feature is the full countermark with its full reverse impression on the front (known as a brockage, when the mark is struck without the coin present, leaving a reverse impression of the mark to appear on the next coin to hit the anvil), nice toning, light corrosion only. Recovered from: Maravillas, sunk in 1656 off Grand Bahama Island. With Marex certificate #0445.
