Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales, Philip II, oMO to left. S-M11. 27.3 grams. This is a choice specimen of what was once considered the first dollar-sized "crown" of Mexico and therefore of North America (that honor now given to 3 Charles-Joanna "Early Series" 8R of Rincón recovered from the "Golden Fleece wreck" of ca. 1550 with an established value of at least $300,000 each), with well-detailed full shield, full cross and crown, bold king's ordinal II in legend, full and clear oMO, AXF with toning around devices, deep old scratch near edge.
