    Mexico 8 Cob Obverse/Reverse Die strike

    Here is a pretty cool example of things are not always perfect at the mint...
    sometimes its weight, purity issues, die errors, or NO MINT is perfect.
    Post your own cob that doesn't fit the "normal"
    I will guarantee you there are many overweight, under weight, purity issues, etc...on this coinage.
    Post yours if you got one.
    Cheers,
    Trez

    Trez, see my auction listing thread on ColonialCobs. There are 2 in particular. One is an engraving error. It is an Atocha period and I title it "Good Help is hard to find". It was under the craftsmanship of the dyslexic mintworker. You can see the effort to enhance the House of Naples element on the Hapsburg shield, but went ahead and placed his effort in House of Austria.

    Also, in the latter years of the Potosi mint, quality was lacking. Sedwick even thinks it is one of the better pieces that I'm consigning as they are so difficult to find in acceptable condition. It suffered from a double strike where the date reads 7-6-6-9. It is also in the ColonialCob listing.

    PS- you say that you are interested in mainly 1715 fleet pieces. I have an 8R from Joel Ruth that he discovered after Jeanne at a salvor's camp. You should take a look.
