    and the second
    8 Reales Santa Fé de Nuevo Reino (Bogotá) 1759 Ferdinand VI Very Rare

    and the third, fourth an so on...

    Those are some outstanding pieces for lighting the fire on an 8 reales thread. Let the games begin! I'll throw in a 1762 8 Reales from Mexico City, assayer M.M. 1762 Mo MM 8 Reales Obv.jpg 1762 Mo MM 8 Reales Rev.jpg
    And, I will add another 8 reales, also from Mexico City, but minted under the reign of Carlos IIII. 1797 Mo FM 8 Reales Obv.jpg 1797 Mo FM 8 Reales Rev.jpg

    Ok, can anyone step up to the plate and shows us some cobs?

    Sí... ya lo sé... it's not an 8 reales coin, but it's still nice, isn't it...? ;-)

    I've been working on an XF/AU type set of Mexican portrait 8R, but I prefer the patinas on these to be dark. Here are my two so far:

    1792Mo FM NGC XF40 (looks like an XF45 to me)

    1821Zs AZ/RG NGC XF45

    Thanks for the links and photos for fake Spanish colonials. The reason that I joined this forum in the first place was due to the purchase of a cob that turned out to be a counterfeit.

    Very poor photo but I am trying to get more information about this coin. I don't know what the punch mark is. I also noted the letter M in Lima is double struck. I wonder if it would have any effect on value.

    Great Examples.... My two are already here...and i lost a bid for some cobs...so sorry no photos to share of anything else not already here....

    A comment to mcbraun----I had to sell my attributed 1783 Cazador ship-wreck coin and all the 'dealer' kept saying, with a disappointing shake of his head, was that it was too bad it was salt-water damaged. Can you believe it??
