Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales Royal (galano), 1715J, NGC XF details / plugged, repaired. S-M22; KM-R47; CT-711. 27.11 grams. Mexican Royal 8 reales are among the rarest and most desirable Spanish colonial coins, and this date 1715 is particularly rare and sought in light of the shipwreck disaster of that year (die-match with Lazaro #70, rated R3). Like all the Royals of after 1714, this piece has 100% perfect details (some believe it was machine-struck), with no flatness or doubling or centering issues, with precise medallic alignment. The fields are toned, with some tooling, particularly at 6 o'clock where an old hole was expertly repaired, but in all other respects this piece is choice and worthy of the finest collections. NGC #4495919-001.
