    Is this a authentic Reale

    My father in law purchased this for my Mother in law and was told it was an authentic coin but the seller could not tell them any thing else about it. I have posted these in the past and everyone has given me great info. Is it real? if so when was it stuck by who and where could it be a shipwreck coin? Any info I can provide her about it would be awesome. In advance thanks for everyone's help.

    It is a sea-salvaged cob as evidenced by the corrosion on the cross side. Based on the scale of the bezel and cob, I would guess that it is an 8 reales. You would have to weigh it to be sure. It was minted in Potosi and the assayer is Agustin de la Quadra who held the office from 1613 - 1616.

    A popular known fake. In this version of a cast of a copy, they didn't quite eliminate all the letters of "Copy". 2 picture (cross side) - starting at 4 o'clock and going to 5 o'clock are the letters "op" of copy.
