    1600s spanish silver help id

    Hello everyone i found this coin the other day i believe to be king charles II possible 1/2 reale. im not an expert its clearly hammered and extremely small about pull tab size just looking information on when and where it was made and if it is a 1/2 reale. I can't find any other coin that looks like it. Thanks for any info! The cross has lions and castles in opposite corners and the back has CAS. the house was built mid 1600s if that helps

    You have it correct. A King Charles II half reale. not enough visible to ascertain the mint location other than eliminating Mexico City.

    It isn't rare. It has more value to you knowing that you dug it.

    Probably late 1600's, from Lima. Potosi crosses are much more irregular.

    Its Potosi mint. You can see in the first picture the line of dots are not round. They are jellybeans. That's Potosi. A great video on YouTube about identifying Charles II half reales by CaptainMyCaptain. The video is called Differences in 1/2 Real Coins.....

    Have a nice day. For an accurate determination, you need high-quality photos and the weight of the coin. From your photos you can see that this is 1 | 2 real, 170? (they were minted 1700 and 1701), in the cities of Potosi and Lima. Charles 2, Spain. If you take a good photo and give the weight of the coin, then you can more accurately say.Click image for larger version.

    He could be right. It's just too hard to tell.

Juiceboxer has the jellybeans. You can see 3 or 4 of them to the left of the C. Also, if Kravotinec's drawing is traced photo is accurate, you can see the C terminated at the base of the A. Again, that is another Potosi clue. In Lima Charles II halves, the C always drags up to the crossbeam in the A. It's a nice find either way!

    Hi! I think your cob is a 1/2 Real from Lima. Essayer Francisco Hurtado. He worked in Lima from 1700-1705, and from 1707-1711.
    Congratulations on your find and keep going!!!
