Sincona sale 57, lot 3419
This specimen was lot 3419 in Sincona sale 57 (Zurich, May 2019), where it sold for 1,600 CHF (about US$1,904 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Carlos II. 1665-1700. 8 Reales 1683 (über 1682), Segovia. Vorzüglich. Kleine Randfehler. (kingdom of Spain, Charles II, 1665-1700, eight reales of 1638/2, Segovia mint. Extremely fine, Minor edge faults.)"
For some unknown reason, this type is omitted from the current edition of the SCWC but is well attested in the other literature for 1679-85. The aqueduct was the mintmark for the Segovia mint until it closed in the 1850's.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 27.47 g, .931 fine silver; this specimen is 27.01 g.
