Mexico City, Mexico, pillar 8 reales, Philip V, 1733F, mintmark M•X, very rare. CT-103. 25.0 grams. Choice specimen with minimal corrosion (parts of edge only), all details clear and AU for grade, subtle toning, very popular for the ephemeral M•X mintmark, being one of the very few times in its long history that the Mexican mint deviated from its traditional oM mintmark. Recovered from: Spanish 1733 Fleet, Florida Keys. From the "Coffins Patch" site, with salvager's photo-certificate.
