Lot description:


BOLIVIA. Cob 4 Reales, 1618-P. Potosi Mint; Assayer Juan Jimenez de Tapia (T). Philip III. PCGS Genuine--Salt Water Damage, Fine Details.
KM-9; Cal-776. Weight: 10.66 gms. This SCARCE shipwreck cob is heavily corroded from saltwater, but enough detail remains to attribute the coin to the tenure of the assayer Tapia. The reverse is slightly better preserved, offering clear views of the castles and lions, along with a fair portion of the legend. Most fortunately, just enough of the final "8" remains to date the coin to 1618. An interesting piece recovered from the famous Atocha wreck.
