Bolivia. 1808 PJ 4 reales. Potosi mint. Carlos IIII. Choice About Uncirculated. An unusually high grade specimen of this most elusive of the Spanish colonial silver denominations. Mostly brilliant, with light toning in the fields and over devices. The lustre is intact and quite flashy at peripheries; the reverse cartwheel is especially strong. Some minor hairlines are noted, not a serious distraction and not enough to keep this from a major service holder. A short horizontal scratch over 180 of the date is the only flaw noted, and the eye appeal is very nice. The central strike could be a bit firmer, but holding out for perfection (or even for a true Unc) might leave a 4 reales-sized hole in your denomination set for a very, very long time. This would be a nice counterbalance to a Bust half collection in similarly high grade.
