Description: This 8 Reales cob was minted in Mexico and was most likely salvaged from the 1715 Fleet. While it may have no papers or COA to accompany it, this cob shows all the signs and details of being recovered from a shipwreck! With few details still intact, the mint mark, assayers mark, and the shield helps us identify the exact time period of its minting. A wonderful piece for any collector of shipwreck or Spanish Colonial coinage!
