Small silver "plata corriente" cut piece with partial tax stamp visible, 26.58 grams (about the weight of an 8 reales), ex-Jones (Plate Piece). Roughly 1" x 5/8" x 3/8". A small but rather thick chunk (broken from the middle of a "splash" ingot) with distinct evidence of a circular tax stamp on one side, its details worn from use but clearly enough to allow the piece to circulate as a makeshift coin in its time. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection, plated on page 28 of his book The First Coins of the Americas (2020), and to our Auction 24, with original lot-tag #260.
