Hey Folks,

Got out today despite the absolutely brutal heat and humidity here. Think my sweat paid off. Not sure if I have joined the illustrious Cob Club but maybe.

Pulled this silver the clearly has a crown and what appears to be the beginning of the date 16? The back has what appears to be a shield (castle, lion maybe?). Did some searching and couldnt find a match. Wondering if it's a cob or a strangely cut spanish. Half reale size if you were wondering.

Thoughts? Would love to have some of the spanish experts weigh in here.

Happy hunting!
