    A tighter date range (without reading date on the coin) is determined by the assayers names and term of service:
    Assayers: FM= Francesco Arance y Cobos & Mariano Rodriquez 1789-1803.

    If the coin was dated 1807, the assayer's initials would have been TH.
    But these are clearly FM.
    Assuming the date ended in '7', that would give it a date of 1797.
    The FM letters only appear on 1/2R MXC coins from 1789 to 1801.

    Don, you are correct
    I stand corrected, Assuming it ended in 7...it clearly is present, so 1797.
    I'll stick with cobs or Musketballs...Cheers

    Trez,
    In my book you are one of the best ID-ers of coins (especially cobs ).
    Glad to have shared many years and continue to share with you the TN experience.
