Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, (164)4T, Royal-like. S-P30; KM-19a; CT-491. 24.3 grams. Broad flan with choice full shield and cross (the latter very slightly doubled) and much legend, VF+ with toned fields, clear 4 at end of date, a bit underweight but edges intact, probably a coin that should not have escaped the great recall in 1649. A gorgeous specimen in any case, far better than normal for this period, and well worth a premium.
