Lot description:

Potosi, Bolivia, cob 8 reales, Philip II, assayer RL, Grade 1. S-P13; KM-5.1; Cal-675. 24.61 grams. A very choice coin for this wreck, among the nicest we have seen, with practically no corrosion, full and bold shield and cross, nearly full crown, bold full P-RL (misattributed to Philip III "B over R" on the tag and certificate), even much legend, all with an elegant toning that makes the coin look non-salvage. With original Fisher tag and photo-certificate 85A-220126. Recovered from: Atocha, sunk in 1622 west of Key West, Florida.

Estimate: $1500 - $2250
