ID:	1679893 a Revolutionary 3 lb Cannon ball and various buttons I uncovered this Cobb. Many relics I will show on Todays finds but was hoping someone here could help ID this coin. Thanks!

    Nice 1 Reale minted in 1688 at Lima. Assayer is Miguel de Rojas Paramo.

    That's a very nice little cob. I agree with Diver Down.

    There's a pic of a similar Lima 1 reale, that one dated 1695, in Sedwick's "The Practical Book of Cobs". But I like Schuder's cob better.
