El Cazador shipwreck reales value

What is the rough value of the various denominations of reales from the El Cazador shipwreck?

    Depends a lot on the condition. This is much more a qualitative scale than it is grade=price.

    I’ve been looking a lot at the 2R. For a decent one that’s corroded but not destroyed, complete, full date, NGC certified, you can expect to pay $125-$150. If it’s kinda ruined, less.

    1/2R and 1R tend to trade about the same. $50-$100. Sometimes less if they’re really bad, sometimes more if they’re very nice.

    I don’t have enough info on 4R. They may or may not trade in the same range.

    An 8R usually goes for $200-$300 for a nice complete certified example. A crappy one, maybe $75-$175 range. I’ve seen these go pretty high though, when they’re really nice. $500 or higher isn’t unheard of.

    The ones that get an actual numeric grade, which are quite rare, go for much more on average. I think PCGS ones trade for more also. They tend to be “prime select” which are nicer on average.

    Just my observations over the last couple years.

    This for example it is at $275 2R

    Have seen them at 79.95-129 the 2R and a 8R at 95-149 buckaroos

    There are a significant number in older ANACS soapboxes that have numerical grades that shouldn’t.
