A.J. WILLIAMS on 1774 JR Potosi four reales. Brunk-unlisted. Choice Fine. While one reales and two reales are often seen with merchant countermarks from the United States, four reales are almost never encountered, making this a rather unusual piece. A.J. Williams is unlisted by Brunk and is fairly tough to pin down. The previous owner of this piece suggested Abijah Jewel Williams, an upstate New York manufacturer whose businesses thrived in the 1840s. The name and mark has every indication of being American, making this coin a rare four reales that can actually be placed in American circulation. The typical wisdom is that large numbers of early half dollars were struck because four reales were not common (or the converse). The piece shows beautiful light opalescent gray toning on silvery surfaces, just a few marks under Carlos' chin, and excellent overall eye appeal.
