Lot description:


BOLIVIA. Cob 4 Reales, 1619-P. Potosi Mint; Assayer Juan Jimenez de Tapia (T). Philip III. PCGS Genuine--Salt Water Damage, Fine Details.
KM-9; Cal-777. Weight: 10.77 gms. Recovered from the Nuestra Senora de Atocha wreck, this Cob exhibits the shiny and corroded surfaces typical of shipwreck finds. While most of its detail has been lost, the clear outline of the Habsburg shield is visible on the obverse, along with the Potosi mintmark to the left. Most fortunately, the reverse displays an unmistakable date above a distinct central cross. A pleasing dated example from this famous sunken treasure find.
