    Found this coin? Unkown origins?

    I resell online and came across this coin in some clothing bins I was going through. I do metal detecting on the side, but wasn't expecting to find this. I have no idea what era it is or anything. Could someone help me out? I would love to learn more about it, even if it is a replica which I think it is :/.

    Thanks, Burg

    I'm no expert but 1600's 2 reales, Mexico mint. The OMD on the side is the "mint mark" so to speak: Mexico 1618-Mo D 2 reales - CoinFactsWiki

    That said it looks like a fake/reproduction to me just from the pictures.

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

    Welcome.
    Its a copy/fake, I wouldn't list it online unless you state as much. I never want to be accused of fooling people.
