Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1704Y. S-P43a; KM-31 ;CT-864. 25.85 grams. Completing our 1704 "set" is this regular-issue example, a nice but typical specimen with bold date, two assayers, nearly full and well-centered pillars and cross on a typically fat, chunky flan, Fine+ with contrasting toning. The values of these three 1704 8R—all three among the best of their types, in fact—spans three orders of magnitude, but then so does their difference in beauty. How fun it would be for the same collector to win all three coins and keep them together as an example of what the mint could do but generally did not.
