Potosí, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, Philip IV, assayer T (1640s), with crowned L countermark on cross side, rare. S-P30, KM-19a. 19.6 grams. Common countermark but rare on a pre-1648 coin, as this must be (assayer T), even though the date is not visible. Full but off-center cross, full but weak shield, a bit worn and pitted, but countermark and assayer both very clear. Pedigreed to the Louis Hudson collection. Recovered from: Capitana (Jesús María de la Limpia Concepción), sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
