Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales, (1)611, assayer D(!), Grade 1, very rare. Fascinating coin with clear 11 of date but also discernible assayer D, who was not supposed to have begun until 1618 but probably re-used assayer-F dies from many years prior without changing the date, this with huge flan featuring a choice full shield and denomination 8, good full cross, 2 narrow edge-splits, no corrosion, evenly brown-toned all over. Encapsulated by NGC and with Arqueonautas certificate #1973918012, with wooden presentation box. Recovered from: Sao Jose, sunk in 1622 off Mozambique
