Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales Royal, 1734E, encapsulated NGC AU 58, very rare. S-P46; KM-R31a ;CT-831. 26.8 grams. A perfect example of the small, thick and perfectly round Royals from this period, this one very well preserved (note the NGC grade) and well struck, with all interior details full and bold (no legends, as expected), also beautifully toned, unholed, and with axes aligned by 90 degrees—like we said, a perfect example! Lazaro #281 for the date but not a die-match. Also note that this exemplary piece spawned some well-known fakes—shame on its previous owner (not the current consignor)!
