Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales Royal, 1654E, PH at top. S-P37a; KM-R21; CT-411. 27.3 grams. Choice specimen with full and bold details on both sides, including legends, enhanced by contrasting toning, just the cross slightly doubled, with very little evidence of wear except on the high points (XF overall), a die-match with Lazaro #141 (even doubled in many of the same places, perhaps an indicator of die-doubling), but unlike that coin, which has two blatant holes, this piece has just one expertly plugged hole at the very edge (on the H of HISPANIARVM).
