    A 1721 2 Reales from the recent Newman sale that fits in my "Coins Circulating in Early America" set as well as my prime number set. A twofer!

    Very Nice. If I am not mistaken, that 2 Reales is from a Spanish Peninsular mint?
    i.e not from the one of the New World mints.

    Correct. The pistareens were minted in Spain for use in the colonies. They were made on rocker presses, so they are slightly curved. This makes them a little tricky to photograph.
