Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, Philip II, P-B (2nd period), "Great Module," largest flan ever recorded. S-P6. 26.9 grams. The biggest 8 reales cobs ever made were the famous "Great Module" coins of 2nd-period B at Potosí, and this specimen at 44 mm has the broadest diameter we have ever seen! The metal extends well past the legends in most areas, with some of the legend nevertheless flat and doubled, choice full shield and cross and crown, doubled P-B, attractively toned XF.
