This topic for those cobs that are well pedigreed for which the current whereabouts may or may not be known. This topic may be useful for those who are searching out specific coins.

I'll start with a very well pedigreed eight reales of Santa Fe (de Bogota) also known as Nuevo Reino. I am looking for its current whereabouts. I have sale records for it for 1935 and 1975 and many catalog listings.

Philip IV, Santa Fe, 8 Reales, 1662 NoR, assayer PoRS
