Potosi, Bolivia, cob 4 reales, Philip II, assayer B (1st period). S-P4; KM-4.2. 13.5 grams. Broad, round flan with full but slightly doubled shield and cross, bold P-B and much legend despite light surface corrosion, otherwise VF with some contrasting toning. While the difference between 1st and 2nd periods of B is more obvious in 8R, for the 4R denomination it appears the only difference is the spelling of HISPANIARVM without the initial H, which is clearly the case for this coin.
