    I would imagine all silver colonial coins could be cut. We need a coin expert to positively ID this. It almost looks like a $ sign next to the 00.

    i think it's cool that some of the detail is visible on the part left from the rough cut. (picture 3 anyway to see what i mean)

    Re: sliver of silver?

    am I imagining things, or is there a "88" on the piece?

    Re: sliver of silver?

    what I mean is it was matched up on the face side of the reale, right? then that side should be the one with the date, not the other side of piece? Am I making sense?

    I understand. IMO we dont have an ID. Its probably 1788 and cut from a colonial coin but I dont know which one. We have 88 on one side and 00 on the other. Take a pic of a worn down reale and try to match it to the backside.
