    You really need a coa to tell if it's wreck silver, it's in a way too good condition in my opinion...look at mel fishers coins that came from the atocha and even the best are not as good as this, my coin was from a river haul but still with any kind of movement from tides would slick most coins out or some size together so you find break marks where they have been seperated.

    Looks pretty good to me - I also have one of these beauties and it came from the Hollandia wreak in 1743, so given your coins date it could also be from the same wreckage ........

    Seemingly they grind the edges on some fakes to round them off because the casting leaves evidence.  This makes the edges rounded and often brighter as it's done after the fake aging. 
    Yours looks a bit rounded at the edges and shinier than the rest.
    This would make me a little suspicious.
     
    Fakes are often edged after the coin has been cast and real ones are edged prior to striking afaik so damage to the denticles can also be evidence of a fake.  The problem is there are so many different fakes of these and some are silver and some were made in the same time period as the real ones.  You'd really need to ask a collector who has experience with these.

    Stumbled across this Mexican 'ship-wreck' 8 reales a few days ago and after a bit of research, had to take a punt on it.
    If anyone knows more about them, it would be great to hear from you. Main questions:
    1. Is it genuine? It weighs 26.45g, So within the weight range I would expect from my research. It also looks like the pics I've seen online. I can't spot any errors that would indicate a fake to me.
    2. What grade do you think it would get if I graded it? Rough guesses welcome, I won't hold you to them I'm useless at predicting grades!
    3. Is there any way to determine what ship it may have been wrecked on? I have no info from the seller regarding this

    It is dated 1739, and minted at the Mexico City mint. There aren't any chop marks on it, so it might not have seen circulation in the Orient. With that info you might be able to narrow down what ship wrecks are known, when and where they went down, and what they were known to have on board. Beyond that, I don't know how you'd know what wreck it came from. 
    Aside from that, that's a very nice looking coin, much nicer looking than my buddy's ex-girlfriend. If it's from a wreck, it wasn't exposed to any sea water, by the looks of it.

    I can't help you but that is a super cool coin. I hope it's real. It'd be awesome if Spain minted these and made them a standard bullion coin ala the Brittania, Eagle, Maple,Kangaroo.

    They ignored my physical letter. Email them threatening ICO complaints and tell them not to contact you or pass your details on to anyone. 
    I did this and haven't recieved any junk letters in months. Even after I bought 2 more sovereigns.

    So today my 8 year old took me to the bank and took money out of her account to buy her first bit of silver. She always has a say in what I buy but she wanted this after watching a video with me from a Mr Back yard bullion. 😁 She is so excited. After speaking to a really nice lady at Bleyer called Robin I have ordered her bar for her. She is so excited to one get her first piece and two happy to have helped in a small way this amazing charity
