Choice and Original 1808 Potosi 4 Reales

SOLD

Details

Bolivia. 1808 PJ 4 reales. Potosi mint. EF-45 (NGC). An attractive and original example of this challenging denomination. A good deal of frosty lustre and cartwheel persists, with somewhat mottled medium gray toning flashing trace highlights of gold, blue, and pale green in areas. The reverse is more even than the obverse, but also lively and lustrous. The strike is good for the issue, and PLUS ULTRA is complete on the pillars; many certified EFs don't show such clarity of fine detail. A glass picks up some scattered hairlines and ticks, but nothing serious. Given the level of lustre and the very minor wear and handling, this piece could be described as AU and most wouldn't complain a bit. Offered with the original envelope from Almanzar's, from whom this coin was acquired in the early 1970s.
