Full date 1713 Mexico Eight Reales

Coin Description: Full date 1713 Mexico Eight Reales. 26.6 grams. Partial “OMJ”. The obverse shield appears to be “broken” and obscures part of the “OMJ”. This may be the result of a double strike or a poorly cut die. The shield is however almost complete although a bit flat. Note that there is still sediment apparent in the devices of the shield. The reverse cross is nearly 100% complete. All lions and castles are visible but flat. Hammer marks apparent around the edges.
