This coin is a mystery piece that appears to be part of a cut down Columnario type, not a Cob. It’s been hammered as evidenced by the distance of the 1753 date from the edge of the flan and is missing imagery as well as typical legend text along the perimeter.
I have no idea what the countermark represents. What are the rough diameters and weight? Where did you get it? This might inform what the original denomination was, which I suspect was 8 reales.

These examples sold between $400-600.
