Iturbide 8 reales that appear on eBay are often Numismatic Forgeries regardless of what the seller says. Here are two recent examples of the situation:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mexico-182...183790537584



This coin is presented as an original even though it is a recently made numismatic forgery. The price $250 would be a great bargain if the coin was genuine.

Here is another one:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Coin-8-Rea...254210927530



In this case the coin is referred to as "not new" and the date of manufacture is given as 1822. Neither statement is factual - the coin is still in production and the price of $38 while still a rip-off is far better. In my view $5 is too much to pay for such a poor modern copy.

To eliminate any doubt here is a third example from eBay a genuine coin encapsulated by NGC:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1822-Mo-NG...392276751039



Here the price is a far more realistic $1,100.
My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon http://ccfgo.com/TheUnrealReales or from me directly if you want it signed.

Alas, my Mexico type set will never have an example, at least not in this lovely condition..
Coins were meant to be spent.
