Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales, 1689L, extremely rare. S-M21; KM-46; CT-289. 26.4 grams. A fascinating and very distinctive coin, with bold date and oML, end of king's name and ordinal II in legend, flat in centers (VF otherwise) but with long natural lacuna in surface, the obverse nicely aligned with its shape (top and bottom straight, the sides curved, wider at the bottom), attractively old-toned, and so rare that we cannot trace any other non-Royal examples. Pedigreed to the Stack's auction of June, 1998, lot 942, also KM Plate Coin.
