Potosi, Bolivia, cob 2 reales Royal (galano), 1726Y, Louis I, extremely rare, NGC VF details / holed, Calico Plate Coin. S-P43b; KM-unl; Cal-23 (this coin). 5.99 grams. Well-centered strike on an even flan that is just broad enough to include the bottom of the king's name LVIS outside the cross as well as some legend on the pillars side, which is very slightly doubled, with rich old toning and the inevitable hole near the top of the cross / top of the right pillar. To the best of our knowledge, this coin is unique. Plate Coin on p. 313 of Calico's Numismatica espanola (2019), also pedigreed to the Aureo auction of March 2018 (lot #283). NGC #5902427-010.
