This specimen was lot 24488 in Heritage sale 3032 (Chicago, April 2014), where it sold for $3,525. The catalog description[1] noted, "Philip IV cob 8 Reales 1628 NR-P, Nuevo Reino mint, VF. Despite the reduced weight, the surfaces are pleasant and only show truly minimal corrosion. Amazingly, the reduced size planchet allows most of the important details to be present: the NR mintmark and assayer Pinto's initial P to the left of the shield, the denomination to its right, and the all-important date (16)28 below the right lion on the reverse lower right quadrant. Very few attributable 8 Reales from the early periods of the Santa Fe (de Nuevo Reino) and Cartagena mint survive. This is a truly rare opportunity for the collector of this rare and challenging series. Ex: Von Schuckmann Collection (Renaissance Auctions 12/2001, lot 3108)."

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 27.07 g, .931 fine silver, .810 troy oz ASW, this specimen 22.3 grams.

Catalog reference: Cayón no. 6250, KM 3.3, Restrepo-M44.
