Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales Royal, 1704Y. S-P43a; KM-R31 ;CT-805. 26.45 grams. As Royals go, the biggest factor for determining price is whether or not they were holed, for un-holed examples like this one are quite rare. This one is also impressively broad and well struck, with all details full and bold, also attractively toned, XF for grade, axes aligned (coin alignment), one of the best-quality Royals we have offered, far superior to Lazaro's example (#243, rated at R3), which is different dies anyway. Pedigreed to the Ponterio auction of January 2001, with original lot-tag #1426.
