Fellow members,

i am glad to present a very attractive 10 Reali cob coin (in italian "maltagliato" means crudely cut = cob) of Cagliari (Sardinia) struck on a silver 8 reales cob (probably Seville mint) during 1621-1660s.




If one examines the fields closely there are still the 8 reales details recognizable.

This is probably the only 8 reales cob-coin type with a bust on it.

Interesting coin.
But if they used silver coins of that weight instead of blanks, then there are probably quite a few like your around.

Of course there are.

I never said, that the coin is unique.

This type is possibly unique (bust on a 8 reales cob coin), at least to me.

I know other italian states with busts on their coins, but they usually prepare their own planchets.

Maybe there is a type, which I missed.

Any suggestions for another bust type coin struck on 8 reales cobs?
