Ponterio sale 177, lot 13030
Bolivia 1691 8 reales rev P177-13030.jpg

Royals are known of this type from the Potosi mint but all are rare. The regular cob issues are not nearly as nice. The years 1649-52 were a period of reform at the Potosi mint; it was found that the previous mintmasters in office 1625-48 had been debasing the cobs, a crime for which one official paid with his life. This specimen was lot 13030 in Ponterio sale 177 (Chicago, August 2013), where it sold for $2,585. The catalog description[1] noted, "BOLIVIA. 8 Reales, 1691-PVR. Potosi Mint. Charles II (1665-1700). Royal presentation strike. Holed at 11 o'clock with some spots of tooling, traces of gilding."
