Owner Comments:

Charles IV was the second son of Charles III. He was a poor leader and failed to sustain the efforts of his father to prevent the collapse of the Spanish Empire.

My first raw submission that graded at mint state. From Daniel Frank Sedwick's Treasure Auction #12, October 2012. KM-73; CT-721. 26.9 grams. Highly lustrous UNC with bold rims, no problems. Pedigreed to the ca.-1808 "Cuzco hoard" -- a trunk full of silver coins, all minted in Potosí, but found in Peru in 2007 -- and to Treasure Auction #5 (lot 890).
