Potosi, Bolivia, cob 2 reales, Philip III, assayer R (straight-leg R), scarce variety. S-P15; KM-8. 6.7 grams. The Philip III issue of this assayer (Ramos) is more commonly seen with a curved-leg R, but the R (full and bold) on this coin is more like the RL of Philip II, yet with very clear king's ordinal III in the legend, also with nice full cross and shield, well centered on a roundish flan with slightly crude edge (as made), lightly toned Fine+. Pedigreed to the Mark Bir collection.
