Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1649O, with crowned-L countermark on cross, ex-Ponterio "La Capitana" sale. S-P35; KM-19b; CT-506. 24.24 grams. Very smooth surfaces as totally uncorroded, also a broad flan (the low weight therefore inexplicable), with full shield and cross, full assayer, full countermark and very bold full 49 of date, clearly a premium specimen from this wreck. Pedigreed to the Ponterio "La Capitana" auction of April 1999, with original lot-tag #111 and original catalog, and with certificate from the salvagers. Recovered from: Capitana, sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
