There are not many colonial 4 Reales contemporary counterfeits. You almost certainly have a genuine piece or a blatant modern forgery.

If you know how to take a screenshot of your photo, that will probably be a lower resolution.

The 4 reales little sister is a genuine coin from my inspection of pictures. As realeswatcher says counterfeits of Portrait 4Rs are far less common than 8R verieties. It is clearly not a contemporary counterfeit nor is it a numismatic forgery.
My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon http://ccfgo.com/TheUnrealReales or from me directly if you want it signed.

I'm on a MacBook Pro. Anyone have suggestions as to the piece I'm missing?


@Stevearino, I would ask if you've verified that the image you are submitting is a .jpg or .gif with that extension at the end of the file name. The new default MacOS format is .HEIC. A good format in its own right, but not yet compatible with most online image hosting and might give the error you mention.

Also, if all other settings look right, but the image file size is still too large try changing the "resolution" in any image editor. Camera phone images can be 600 to 1200 dpi or more these days, but you only need about 72 dpi for most web viewing.

Hope this helps,

@PatAR, thank you for the advice. I will go back to your post the next time I try to post an image. Appreciate it!
