Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, (16)52E transitional Type V/B, rare, ex-Mastalir collection. S-P37; KM-unl; CT-unl. 20.83 grams. Oblong flan due to corrosion on edge but interior details decent, including full pillars and crown and cross, two dates, king's name, nice toning, minor edge-split. Note this is placed AFTER Types VI and VII chronologically because it is a muling of a new cross design (which began with Type VII) with an old Type-V pillars side. Pedigreed to the Roberto Mastalir collection, #V.1-B.de.x(1)4 in his book (page 187), with Herman Moro certificate. Recovered from: Capitana, sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
