Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales, (162)2/0D, clear overdate, stars in legend. S-M18a; KM-unl. (cf. 45). 26.8 grams. Typically barrel-shaped flan but with the shield side oddly oriented sideways, very solid and corrosion-free but unevenly thick, with good full shield and oMD, bold 2/0 date, cross full but weak, curiously with a small star just after date (in fact over-punched by the 0) and visible three times in the reverse legend as *ET*IN*DIAR(VM). From: "Lucayan Beach wreck," sunk ca. 1628 off Grand Bahama Island
