Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, (16)50O, variety with dots between digits of date, with arms countermark on reverse. S-P35; KM-unl. ;CT-unl. 28.05 grams. Fine+ with toned fields but much flatness, rare as non-salvage (also note the high weight), the P-O and 8-O clear, as is also the countermark and dot-0-dot of the date, an interesting one-year subtype that was not really noticed until Ponterio's Capitana (1654) auction of 1999.
