    1600s Cob and 2 Largies in New Jersey

    Wrap up of today's 5 hour hunt today in New Jersey.

    1822 Coronet Large Cent, undatable Braided Hair Large Cent (1840-1857), 5 buttons and what seems to be a 1621-1665 Spanish Colonial Philip IV Silver Cob.

    Any Spanish Cob experts on the forum? Any info on the cob would be greatly appreciated!

    ** update - a few people sent me links and photos and it looks like the cob I dug yesterday is a Philip IV 1621-1665 Spanish 1 Real Cob (based on the weight which is 3-4 grams). It's believed the cuts are from the original creation of the cob and not from a cut occurring later.

    To determine the denomination of your cob, use 27.460 grams as the 'standard weight' for an 8 reales coin; and proportionately less for lower denominations (4,2,1 and 1/2 ).

    Thanks for that info Don!

    Question based on that:

    8 Reales = 27.460
    4 Reales = 13.73
    2 Reales = 6.865
    1 Reales = 3.43

    So, my 3 gram cob would be either a 1 real, a 2 reales cut in half or a 4 reales cut in quarters. I'm thinking a cut 2 reales. I wish I could tell how many cuts it had. Any thought on that based on the photos?
