Hi. Please see below for what I think is a Bolivian 1/2 Real Cob of Felipe V (maybe dated 1741). I see the Jerusalem cross with Lions and Castles on one side and bits of the date on the rev, along with a little bit of the monogram. Or at least I have convinced myself that I can see these things anyways. Can someone please either confirm that I've got it right or else point me in a better direction?

I do note that this piece seems quite light (1.0 g) to be a 1/2 Real. Even considering the hole that turned this into a pendant and a few centuries of wear and tear, does this feel right to you?




Here is a link to the numista page that I am thinking is a match:

Attribution looks correct (and it is Potosi, not Lima).

Flip your cross side 180 degrees for proper alignment.
