Potosi, Bolivia, 1/8 peso(?), (ca. 1863), Acha / dove / ship, PCGS AU58. Burnett-132; Fonrobert-9462c. Obverse with downward-flying dove with olive branch in beak, thematically the same as 1843 issues but with cursive J.MdeA below and within legend A SU EXCIA EL PRESIDENTE DE LA REPUBLICA; reverse with ship sailing right under legend EL COMERCIO D POTOSI; reeded edge. Burnett and Fonrobert both considered this a 1 sol but the denomination system at the time was in pesos and this appears to be smaller and more accurately a 1/8 peso. (Slab label calls it 1 sol and also erroneously attributes it to "c. 1865" despite the fact that Acha was overthrown by Melgarejo in 1864.) Off-center strike with crude rims as a result, lightly toned over muted luster, minimal high-point wear. PCGS #32905631. The Whittier Collection of Bolivian Monetary Medals
