A COB salad: the “official” cob thread

Let’s see how long this thing runs. If you have a cob and wish to share, do it here! Here’s my first, modest contribution.

A Guatemala cob, 1 Real, 1741

    Dated 1620 from Potosi.

    Q: When does a collector become a numismatist?



    A: The year they spend more on their library than their coin collection.



    A numismatist is judged more on the content of their library than the content of their cabinet.

    I'd like to buy some "Royals" one day, but it's never been a priority. Mexico 1/2R and 1R, maybe a Potosi 8R, and 1R or 2R from Peru.

    Royals would be great coins to collect but not a cheap endeavour. I had one when I started collecting but sold it (it was a lower denomination from Mexico).

    Collecting interests: Mexico & Peru early milled 1 reales + 1796-1891 US dimes

    Sports: NHL & NFL

    Thank you Lord for another beautiful day!!!

    All you buy is royals my friend. Some larger, some smaller, usually roundish, but all royals
