Impressive Carlos II (1679-84) 8 Reales Cob, ex. Eric Newman Collection

SOLD

Housed in a special commemorative insert Eric P. Newman NGC holder.

Details

Bolivia. (1679-84)-V 8 reales. Potosi mint. Carlos II. VF-30 (NGC). A marvelously crude 8 reales cob, boldly double struck to impressive effect. The planchet shows excellent metal quality with no hints of corrosion or damage, mostly medium antique silver gray but showing attractive pastel blue and gold tones near the peripheries. Much of POTOSI is visible inside the unstruck area at the right periphery, complete but for the planchet split that swallows the S. Three P mintmarks are visible, along with a couple of bold assayer marks and a nice clear 8 atop the reverse. The reverse lions are especially charming and well-defined. Without its famed provenance, this would be a top notch 8 reales cob of a sort commonly found in early America. Of course, for seven decades or more, this has been part of the nation's most famous assemblage of early American and related coins, adding another element of originality and desirability.
