BOLIVIA. "Royal" Presentation Cob 8 Reales, 1653-P E. Potosi Mint. Philip IV. NGC VF Details--Holed.
KM-R21; Cal-Type 104 #410. 26.07 gms. A lovely and wholesome example of the type exhibiting a bold strike on a somewhat compact flan with minimal doubling on both sides displaying very attractive rich old cabinet patina and lighter coloration atop of the devices. A hole at 12 o/clock, as indicated on the NGC insert, is a commonly encountered attribute for these iconic issues though is hardly a distraction. This handsome survivor offers much originality with good eye appeal sure to be a welcome addition to the next collection it enters.
