Full date 1715 Mexico Eight Reales

Coin Description: Full date 1715 Mexico Eight Reales. 26.0 grams. Full “OMJ”. Note the the “J” is slightly tilted which indicates an interesting die variety. The shield is quite nice and bold but not 100% complete. The reverse cross is well centered but lions and castles are indistinct. Hammer marks are also apparent. Note that the date on this coin barely qualifies as a “full date” specimen. The “17” of the date is barely visible but sufficient to categorize the coin as a “full date”.
