As a follow up to our Fleet Society Research Update of December 3rd, here is another Fleet Society Research Update. We now have posted on our website the second of 3 installments of 1715 dated Mexican eight reales from the State of Florida Collection.
Each installment includes 35 images of full or partially dated eight reales coins struck at the Mexico City mint in 1715. This will be followed by 2 additional installments featuring 35 coins each for a total of 105 coins. This is the first time that these coins have been viewed publicly as a group.
The Fleet Society is very pleased to showcase these coins courtesy of the Florida Division of Historical Resources.
Those wishing to leave a comment may do so in the comments sections following each installment.
