Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, Philip II, assayer C, very rare. S-P5; KM-5.1; CT-160. 27.0 grams. Typically huge, round flan, with choice full shield and full but doubled cross, bold P-erasure-C (which Sellschopp originally attributed to La Plata), some flatness and minor surface corrosion in the legends, lustrous and high grade (XF), with colorful toning in crevices, much better than the specimen in our 6th auction that sold for over $4000, which was the first one we had offered in a long time.
