O/T Spanish Colonial Die Break

Post by Buck Nasty » Thu May 23, 2019 8:30 pm

I've been working on an 8 Reales chop mark set dates from 1772 thru 1810 to which I came across this crazy ass die break.

Awesome looking 8 reales with that nasty die break. WOW!
Some historians believe the ribbons wrapping the pillars on the 8 reales is where the dollar sign $ comes from.
I may not be the best, but I do not know anyone better.

The cool thing is that this coin did hella traveling during its existence before the Declaration of Independence was autographed!
