Potosi, Bolivia, cob 1/2 real, Philip II, assayer B (3rd period) to left, mintmark P to right of monogram, rare. S-P10; KM-unl (2.2 for type); CT-unl. 1.66 grams. Choice specimen with full inner details and lots of diagnostic legend (and full crown), including PH(ILIP)PVS D G HISPAN on obverse, AXF with attractive toning, minor flan-cracks below cross. Included with this lot is the hand-written tag from the consignor, an expert in the field, simply to show the confusion in attribution of the minors of this period, as Sellschopp's data set was regrettably small and the coins themselves tend to contradict many of the rules we must use in order to create a reliable sequence of events!
