Description: This is one of the finest Spanish 8 reales cob minted from 1556-1598! Coming in tied for 2nd finest known by NGC, this gorgeous coin will be a crown jewel for any Spanish cob coin collection. This coin is over 400 years old and it is extremely rare to find Spanish cobs in any denomination that don’t have environmental damage, haven’t been cleaned, polished, clipped, filed, or altered in some way.  Typically, you don’t see many 8 Reales graded higher than XF and finding one in mint state with these details is considered like finding a needle in a haystack!
