Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales, 1714 (J) (new style), cross side struck from 4R die (rare), ex-Wagner, ex-Noga. S-M22; KM-47; Cal-1401. 26.94 grams. Oblong shape with one flat end, the other end extended past the coin design with full and bold 1714 date as a result, good cross too (mostly full), clearly in a smaller size (4R die), most of the rest of the coin flat (also some scuffs), with no corrosion but several spots of gray and tan encrustation. Pedigreed to the Frank Noga collection, reportedly once sold by Kip Wagner to "F. Meetze." Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
