    Looks like about 1/16th of an 8 reale. 6.25 cents

    or 1/16th of a 4 reale. 3.125 cents. Like a US 3 cent piece.

    This is the smallest I've seen, but you had to have correct change or you would more than likely pay more for what you were getting. And surely you wouldn't let a merchant cut on for you fairly.

    It looks like a piece of eight and sure looks like silver but I dont think we can say with certainty without matching it. I was thinking the milled pillar type. Take the sliver and try to overlap with one of these coin types. I think I see a "00" in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd pics and it doesnt seem to match up but I may be seeing things To save us some time, have it tested for silver. If its Spanish, it would have been used in the late 1700's before America minted coinage.

    Re: sliver of silver?

    Is there an "00" on the coin, or am I imagining it?
