My oldest coin recovery to date and also a first. Looks to be 1737 Spanish pistareen. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong!

It's Spanish silver alright, but not a pistareen.. Pistareens were minted in Spain and are a 2 reales coin.. Yours in a Pillar style minted in one of Spain's New World mints, most likely Mexico City, but I can't see the mint mark to tell for sure. Also I can't tell the denomination without something for size reference. What US coin is closest to the diameter of your coin?
