Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1650O, with crowned-script-L countermark on cross (very rare). S-P35; KM-19b; CT-509. 25.7 grams. Very solid (uncorroded) flan with bold full cross and shield, the former with full and clear countermark (possibly best specimen known of Ullian Type DD, which he called "R-3" but we think is rarer) and the latter with bold P-O to left and 8-O to right, nicely toned. Recovered from: Capitana, sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
