Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1652E post-transitional (transitional Type VIII/B), 1-PH-6 at top. S-P37a; KM-21; CT-434. 26.03 grams. Choice, uncorroded specimen with full inner details (the pillars slightly off-center), very minor doubling (in fact, the PH at top is lowered as a result, making it appear at first to be a new variety with P-H-E across top), two dates, attractively toned. Pedigreed to the Rob McClung collection. Recovered from: Capitana, sunk in 1654 off Chanduy, Ecuador
