Santa Fe de Nuevo Reino (Bogotá) mint. Philip V (1700-1746). Fine Detail — Holed (PCGS). Plated in Restrepo, Restrepo-Lasser, and Krause-Mishler, where this issue is said to be unique. Pleasing light silver gray with darker recesses that add good contrast. A bit of scale is noted at the base of the left pillar. A three-digit date 722 is visible at the upper left of the obverse. Neatly holed at the base of the obverse, corresponding to the upper right of the shield, but otherwise quite problem free, with just a little scuff to the lower right of the hole on the reverse. This appears to be the only known 1722 Real of this type with a visible date. From the Eldorado Collection of Colombian and Ecuadorian Coins." This type is also known dated 1721.
