Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1699F. S-P42; KM-26; CT-388. 17.0 grams. Heavily corroded but with most of cross and diagnostic details barely visible, silvery, but interesting as from a possible pirate wreck off Mar Bravo, hidden by locals who avoided confiscation by melting the silver coins into spoons and the gold coins into teeth. From the Unidentified ca.-1700 wreck off Punta Santa Elena, Ecuador.
