Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1652E Transitional Type VII/A. S-P37; KM-A20.7; CT-unl. 23.49 grams. Solid coin despite surface corrosion, bold full pillars and shield and crown, three dates, toned on fields, with HP monogram at top above a clear dot instead of denomination 8 (very rare). Also, curiously, the X in REX is not a letter-punch but instead was engraved into the die as two intersecting diagonal lines. Pedigreed to the Rob McClung collection. Recovered from: Capitana, sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
