Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1650O, with THREE crowned countermarks (two T's on shield, one script-P on cross), extremely rare. S-P35; KM-19b; CT-509. 18.49 grams. Two impressively clear T countermarks (one 100% full) on a well-detailed shield with full P-O and 8-O to sides, also full but doubled date on other side (variety with dots between digits) that features a nearly full script-P countermark, the whole coin thin from corrosion and with edge-split but nicely toned. Recovered from: Capitana, sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
