Made in 1804 for circulation in 1804, worth a dollar in the US in 1804. Worth more now, though. $110 shipped and it's yours. SOLD

Well, it wasn't legal tender until the congressional act of April 10th, 1806.
But it's a pretty example of an eight reales!

No, but it looks like there's a dig in the D on the reverse.

Technicalities, technicalities. It may not have been legal tender, but it was still used as a dollar.
