Full date 1711 Mexico Eight Reales

Coin Description: Full date 1711 Mexico Eight Reales. 27.03 grams. Close observation will reveal that portions of all 4 digits are visible but not complete thus qualifying this coin as a full date piece. The “OM” is sharp and distinct. 70% of the shield is also sharp and distinct. Reverse lacks the clarity of the obverse. 75% of the cross is visible but lions and castles quite indistinct. Two bold hammer marks grace each side of the reverse top and bottom.
