    My first cob - half reale - uncertain of variety

    Good morning! I found my first cob a couple days ago at an old farm field site where a fairly old house once stood not too farm from water. I know the area and site dates to colonial (though I wasn't expecting this find when I was chasing the signal!) Super excited, this thing is really cool. I've been trying to work out which one it is. So far I know its Mexico mint due to the cross type and its half reale. Pretty sure its a monogram, but I can't quite figure out which from whats there. Any thoughts? I appreciate the help here always!

    They are likely oriented wrong, I'm not completely sure. If a pic with less light would help too I can do that. Thanks again!

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Yeah its from Mexico, 1690-ish. They went to a design change after about 1700. MAke sure by weight that it is not a full real, as they look very similar.
