Description: A nicely toned extremely fine or better 1817 PTS PJ Bolivian silver coin. This is the Ferdinand VII 8 Reales depicting the bust of King Ferdinand the seventh of Spain on the obverse. The obverse of this large, silver dollar size coin, has the legend "FERDIN.VII.DEI.GRATIA" surrounding the king's bust and the date 1817 below it.

Condition: I would grade the coin as extremely fine or better with all the details being very well preserved with some wear at the higher points commensurate with its age and circulated state. The coin has several dings and bumps to the edges. It shows quite a bit of the details of the king's facial features and hair and the legend is well preserves, obvious and very readable. The reverse retains the details of the arms and has less wear when compared to the obverse. The inscriptions on the reverse are also very readable and very well preserved.
