Bolivia 1773 8 reales rev DSLR.jpg

This type was struck in Bolivia 1773-89 and is common in circulated condition. Overdates are noted for many years but not this one. Harris[1] notes that Potosi eight reales of Charles III are the second commonest mint after Mexico City. Recent hoard finds have only increased this number. This date is priced about double the common date (1775 or 1781). Assayer JR is recorded for 1767-78.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 27.07 g, .903 fine silver, .786 troy oz ASW; this specimen: 27.01 grams.

Catalog reference: Cayón-12015, Eliz-12; KM 55.
