Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1670E, with "Golden Fleece" countermark (Brabant, Spanish Netherlands, 48 patards, 1652-1672) on cross side, rare. S-P37b; KM-26; CT-345. 26.50 grams. Choice high grade (AU), with luster, the countermark (MS) unusually complete, some flat areas but with full crown and bold CARO of king's name, latest-date host we have ever seen for this curious Brabant issue that was enacted in response to the Potosi mint scandal and transition of 1652.
