Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1657E, dot between tops of pillars. S-P37a; KM-21. 26.1 grams. The year 1657 marked the final transition begun in 1652 of the ornamentation between the tops of the pillars, which started with 1-PH-6, then just PH, then pomegranate or dot. This coin shows a clear dot (unlisted in Paoletti, but notably recorded as a Royal in Lazaro), as well as parts of all 3 dates, 2 bold mintmarks and assayers, the pillars-and-waves and cross full but partially weak, toned Fine+.
