Ok so I found this coin in a bag I recently purchased. It is definitely from South America. Matches the 8 Reales from Peru and Chile. But why does it have a plug in the center and a counter stamp?


Yes I know it is a COPY

The coin you have was part of a souvenir packet of "pirate" coins that was sold at many stands in Florida and the Islands. Most that I have seen have the word COPY on the plug. They typically are white metal casts that are far from deceptive.
My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon http://ccfgo.com/TheUnrealReales or from me directly if you want it signed.
