Description: This Atocha shipwreck era 8 reales is a wonderfully preserved specimen from the late 1500s to early 1600s. A well centered shield, strong and clear assayers mark, mint mark, and 8 denomination, along with a gorgeous reverse, this coin is a gem! The old NGC holder also will dictate a probable upgrade in grade if resubmitted as it is such a premium quality specimen. The toning on the surface of this 8 reales also highlights rainbow tones; a rare and unique feature!
