here's some more kindling "very dry"
@David Betts, thanks for contributing but your last two do not fit in this thread.
My sorry thought we were talking large and reales and kindling? You'll see back about 3 pages my large Jap coin? Must have missed the thread but conformation why I love US coins and would love to sell all this foreign junk to someone? Sorry ? Still trying to wrap my head around that? Thought the thread was 8 Reales
@jgenn maybe this was the reales your were threading?
I doubt that such material, by itself, would make for a book that would sell very well. There is relevant discussion published in other references, such as:
Gilboy, "The Milled Columnarios of Central and South America", Appendix I -- The Purity and Weights of the Milled Columnarios
Burdette, "From Mine to Mint", focuses on early US mint processes, some of which are relevant to Spanish Colonial processes.
Gurney, various posts at CCF such as this one.
Maybe we can unify/compile/collect in this thread all coins of the title. 8 Reales macuquinos, columnarios - pillar dollars - busts
This is what I saw back to US
Thanks for the excellent link. Fascinating description of the way they formed the silver blanks (planchets) and the tedious time consuming rolling process. The Spanish mint workers were true craftsmen. Swamperbob has a wealth of knowledge on these coins and the minting process.
I don't really collect the 1700's Spanish Silver Reales, I only have a type set of Charles III Reales. And it's because I collect Sicilian coins of that era and Charles III of Spain had been previously the King of Naples & Sicily (1734-1759) where he was called Carlo III di Borbone . I always wondered if the Sicilian minting process was similar to the Spanish method, since Sicily and Naples were under Spanish rule.
David, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but the OP already made this thread about 8 reales coins. Let's respect that, but maybe make another thread for the things you wish to post/see.

I tend to prefer the reverse of the home Spanish issues rather than the colonial ones - I realise that probably puts me in the minority
That just means less competition great coin!
