    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.
    Real of Tayopa and Mackaydon like this.

    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.

    It’s very nice though. Not every day you come across a king Charles 1/2 reale!
