Choice broad flan (perfectly round) with nearly full legends (including D,G,I, lacking the H of HISPANIARVM), excellent full crown and shield and cross, full P-L punched over an offset L and a partially erased B (great for determining assayer order!), attractively toned and corrosion-free, highly desirable as a Research Collection Plate Coin (which it clearly deserved to be). Pedigreed to the Classics collection, with special Fisher photo-certificate #236096 and plated on plate number 4 in the Atocha Research Collection catalog of 1988. Recovered from: Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida
