Original teardrop shape of this hand cut Spanish silver "Piece of 8" never mattered, the Spanish Crown only required the silver purity be over 93% pure and cut to a specific weight. Special due to all visible details on both sides of coin: Lions of Leon and Castles of Castile in the quadrants of the cross and the mintmark o/M (Mexico City) and Assayer "J" to the left of shield on opposite side. Recovered from the 1715 Fleet shipwreck sites south of Cape Canaveral, Florida.
