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

    BTW, if the mint mark is other than "R", here is that info:
    Bahia 1824-31, Sao Paulo (SP) 1825-29, Cuiaba 1826-30, Goias 1828-31 and Rio 1823-31.
    Caution: Counterfeits are numerous, particularly of the Bahia issues, which were cruder than Rio issues.

    What a fantastic coin, I love the big old silvers, they make such a nice sound when the clink together.
    You coin is very similar to the Brazilian coin Aquachigger found in his cashe. Check out his vid.
