Mexico City, Mexico, pillar 8 reales, Philip V, 1733F, mintmark M.X, very rare, from the 1733 Fleet. KM-103; CT-773. 25.79 grams. Broad flan, UNC details and lovely toning, choice shield side with no corrosion, the pillars side moderately corroded on about a third of the surface but the rest quite nice and the all-important M.X mintmark and date very clear, off-center strike. The 1733 with mintmark M.X is a close second in rarity and popularity to the first-date 1732, and is remarkable as the only time in its history that the Mexico City mint used anything but oM for the mintmark on silver coins. From the "Coffins Patch" site of the 1733 Fleet, with photo-certificate from the salvager and Carl Clegg certificate of authenticity.
