Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, 1772V-(Y). S-P59; KM-45; CT-963. 27.1 grams. Typically very chunky with peripheral flatness and incomplete details, no worse than Fine+ for actual wear, and deeply toned. This coin displays a curious feature of this period: On both sides of the coin there is a rough area where the metal did not cool properly, and universally this feature occurs on opposite ends of the coin, one per side.
