PUNO HOARD OF 1743, 2R 1734P E, This two reale silver piece was recovered from a lost(circa 1743) paymaster's hoard that was recently discovered near Puno in the mountains on the Bolivian/Peruvian border. It is speculated that the mule train carrying a large hoard of coins down to the Pacific Coast to be put on galleons for Panama must have been attacked. The coins were then buried for later retrieval, but they were never retrieved.
