Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1652E transitional Type IV/A, encapsulated ANACS EF-45. S-P37. Very bold and well-defined details all over, slightly doubled but all quite clear (the doubling causing a comical "•PE•POT" to appear at top), much legend, corroded only on part of edge, beautifully toned, also a scarce example of a brief promotion coordinated with ANACS, who placed the name of the wreck inside the slab. Recovered from: Capitana, sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador. With special clamshell display-box.
