WORLD CROWNS  for sale -   Mexico City Mint - Spanish Colonial  8 Reales (N.F.S)
                       Pillar     1732 to 1771  Portrait 1772 to 1821
 
       I first learned about the "Spanish Milled Dollar" when I saw my first Red Book around 1962. These were the first Silver Dollars of the fledgling United States and remained legal tender until 1859. 

      My father started this collection with the 1758 piece on  the right, which I located for him in a Coinhunter auction in Philadelphia in 1974. I have "upgraded", but hold on to it as a souvenir of how I share my father's hobby.

      The collection is complete by date & ruler, missing several assayers and the MX mint piece.

   Chop marks on Pillar 8 R's  are far less common than on Portrait and Cap & Ray 8R's.

          Beware of  fake 8 Reales.
    If you think the price is too good to be true - you are correct.

Most of my early pieces (before 1742) were recovered from shipwrecks. Almost all of these appear to have been in  mint state before they were submerged.   I recall reading an article describing a process of cleaning and retoning these pieces.  The following group, apparently subject to similar processing, and probably came from the same wreck. (Possibly the Reigersdaal or Carolina) See this website dicussing  "perfectly preserved" 8 Reales pieces recovered fron the Reigersdaal wreck.
