    Now those are three cuts you don't see very often. Cut silver is a lot more common in the tobacco colonies, I believe because of a lack of copper coins, which England tried to alleviate with the VA halfpenny. I have found (7) cut 8 reales, which don't seem to be very common in the tobacco colonies.

    Yep. I have several cobs that have been clipped in half (one quartered). My very 1st 1698 was clipped in half. Also have 2 cut Mass silvers. Common around here methinks. It is remarkable that just over here we find the cut pistareens all over the place. Some sites produce scores of em.
