Details

Bolivia. 1685 VR 2 Reales. Potosi mint. Carlos II. Extremely Fine. 6.67 grams. A very nice cob two reales of the type often seen in 17th and 18th century American pockets. The date on the obverse is nice and bold, along with two P mint marks and 2 VR assayer monograms on that side; most of the word POTOSI is legible at the upper right periphery. On the reverse, the center is likewise well struck and detailed, with the denomination 2 plain at top, the date 85 clear at the bottom, the VR assayer monogram crystal clear at right, and the P mintmark a little soft at left. Great old gray color, superb metal quality with no granularity or post-striking issues, just a choice piece that would nicely fit into a well-chosen collection.
