My special new purchase
First let me say that I really like the 8 Reales coin. Something about big silver thrills me. I have been hunting for colonial dates.
Cap & Rays versions were not on my want list. However, I recently stumbled across this coin that simply "spoke to me".
It is one of only three of any date that has been graded MS66+ by our hosts.
I finally got it in hand today after the U.S. Postal Service sent it to an out of the way spot in my state yesterday before landing in my hands.
The coin looks even better in hand than in the photo shows. It is simply superb!! I am humbled to be its caretaker going forward.
Obsessed collector of pieces of history.
