Acquired a relatively humble (raw) Mexico 4 Reales coin, but can you tell what's unusual about it?
I recently purchased this 1758 Mexican 4 Reales.
I don't typically buy raw coins, especially when the only option to view the coin prior to purchase is through a sellers photos. In this case however, I felt that this particular 4 Reales was worth a taking a shot at considering it appeared to be a somewhat decent looking coin and it wasn't very expensive. The thing that gave me the final push to pull the trigger though was that this coin is different than what you most often encounter for this particular date/denomination.
Can you tell, or guess, what that difference (variety) is?
I'll tell you that I found it with the aid of a new book I purchased recently that may be of interest to others out there who collect these series of coins. Reference my comment in this post here if you want more info on the book: Coin Books
First the sellers pictures then a few by camera phone.
