This ruggedly handsome piece-of-eight was minted at the Mexico City facility. It’s a full date 1715 Mexico Eight Reales. 25.8 grams. Full and complete ‘OMJ’. All digits of date visible but not complete. Approximately 40% of shield visible … and extremely strong.
Obverse hammer marks quite distinct, with one blunted corner visible. The blunted corner is due to the minting process. Reverse cross well centered but not quite complete. Lions and castles visible but not distinct. Surfaces of this coin are extremely nice.
A very choice example.
