    Found coin

    I went digging today and found a few things. The coin its self looks Spanish to me. It's very worn, so I couldn't find a date. Can anyone tell what kind of coin I found ? I think the other item may be a trigger and I don't know what the other couple of things are. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Looks like 1662 Potosi reales; maybe a one real coin.
    Weight will give you an indication of its denomination.
    Use 27 grams as a guide for an eight reales coin; proportionately less for a 4,2 or 1 reales.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to clean this coin? I don't want to ruin it. All I have done so far is run it under water and a light brushing to clean the dirt off

    The assayer's initial "E" appears on the coin.
    Antonio de Ergueta was the assayer at the Potosi mint during the years 1652 through 1678.
