Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales Royal (galano), 1757q, unique (unlisted), NGC AU 50, finest and only example in NGC census. S-P54; KM-unl (R40 for type); Cal-506.1. 25.98 grams. With lovely toning and perfectly even and centered strike, albeit on a typically small-diameter (very thick) flan, this recently discovered specimen of an unlisted date defies any accurate estimation, as it is also unholed and one of very few numerically-graded Royals of any period (the Ferdinand VI type being quite rare), let alone at the AU level, rarer still to encounter such a high-quality piece (especially with rich old toning) lacking a pedigree, its omission in all known prior references indicating long residence in some very old, multi-generational collection (the Calico reference having just seen it before publication with a sequence-breaking number). NGC #5903003-001.
