Lot of 4 quarter-cut "bits" of a single Spanish "pistareen" (Madrid 2R 1722A), found together in a colonial area in New Jersey as circulated in the colonial US. 5.7 grams. Metal-detectorists find these cuts all the time up north, but NEVER all 4 pieces of the SAME COIN! The cuts are clearly old, and somewhat irregular, but there is no way the cut pieces could have circulated and ended up together, so surely this was freshly cut when lost in the 1700s. VF overall.
