Attractive Flip-Over Double Strike 1685 Lima 2 Reales

SOLD

Details

Peru. 1685-R 2 reales. Lima mint. Choice Very Fine. 3.6 grams, clipped to a hexagonal shape during its circulating life and barely heavier than a typical 1 real. A fascinating piece, sharp and attractive, showing strong vestiges of a flip-over double strike on both sides. There are two good dates, two assayer marks, and a solid L mintmark. An interesting piece with good eye appeal, an interesting technical aspect, and bold evidence of the sort of theft-by-clipping that led to the end of cob-style coinage.
