Potosi, Bolivia, cob 2 reales, Philip II, assayer L/L/M, Grade 1 (assumed), ex-Atocha Research Collection. S-P3; KM-3.2; Cal-unl. 6.17 grams. Exceptionally choice full details including most of legends and crown, the shield and (slightly doubled) cross particularly well detailed with contrasting toning, die-matched with other known specimens of multiple over-assayer L/L/M (but certificate and tag call it B/L and Lima, as that was the best information at the time), highly desirable pedigree. Atocha Research Collection coin #57, with original Fisher tag and photo-certificate 85A-236066, and with 2008 appraisal for $7500 signed by Dr. R. Duncan Mathewson III. From: Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida
