    1600s spanish silver

    Hello everyone i found this coin the other day i believe to be king charles II possible 1/2 reale. im not an expert its clearly hammered and extremely small about pull tab size just looking information on when and where it was made and if it is a 1/2 reale. I can't find any other coin that looks like it. Thanks for any info! The cross has lions and castles in opposite corners and the back has CAS.

    Looks to me that Cru agrees with your assessment of your find.
    If you can let us know what part of the world and the conditions that you made your find in, this will often help us to identify a find.
