I'll take my shot and hopefully not win, but narrow it down for James.

Is the coin a 1775 Half-Real?

Okay. we have 18/20 questions gone. We have 4 guessers who have taken their best shot and missed the mark.

We have a half reale dated either 1778, 1779 or 1781.

Is it possible someone will ask the 2 remaining yes/no questions and determine the answer?

Do we all know the difference between a yes/no question and a guess?


By the way, this coin does have a MINTMARK!!


Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

I think everyone is thinking it cant be from Potosi because it was stated it was from Peru not the Viceroyalty of Peru.
