Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, (16)44FR, rare. S-P28; KM-19a. 25.52 grams. Very bold full 44 of date (quite rare thus) and full (small) FR assayer, also full shield (slightly doubled) and cross, lustrous and high grade (XF) but flat in places. Note: In our previous description for this piece (Auction #13) we called the assayer TR, because it is much smaller than the usual FR, but there is clearly a serif to the right (but not the left) and it is a match with the even-clearer FR in the next lot (#788) in the current auction. It is quite possible that what we are seeing here is neither TR nor FR but actually plain R punched over something else! Pedigreed to our Auction #13, with original lot-tag #1168.
