New pick up, 1814 Mexico 8 Reales, die clash?

I picked this one up recently. It fits perfectly in my set. I really like the die cracks on the obverse and it appears there is some type of die clash going on? I can see the date on the reverse of the coin. Please help or confirm what I am seeing. Thanks in advance.

    Does look like a die clash. Also a 4/3 overdate.

    Thank you. I didn’t see the 4/3. It is not very pronounced. What should I be “seeing” on the 4/3? Any diagnostics or clues to help? I guess I might have got lucky with this one.

    I attached a close up of the date.

    Great coin. Love all the die breaks. However not sure I agree that that is an overdate. It looks to me more like just an extension of the many die breaks. I have several examples of the overdate, this one looks nothing like those.

    It's pretty cool the entire date shows on the reverse.

    There were quite a few 1814/3 obverse dies. While the die break is present, so is the triangle of the top of the 3, which still still makes me believe it's an overdate.

    I would have said that I don’t see the overdate, but with the pics Kopeiki provided, I think it is.

    The clash is amazing!
