Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, (1650-1)O, with crowned-L countermark on cross side and UNIQUE star-in-circle countermarks near edge. S-P35; KM-19b. 27.1 grams. Exceptionally clear countermark, bold king's ordinal, full but weak shield and cross, no corrosion but some flat spots and uneven toning, but best feature (potentially) is a pair of small countermarks in the legend below the cross that are currently unattributed. With certificate. Recovered from: Capitana, sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
