NOTES FROM THE OWNER. This set is RARE!! I have never seen another.. You can keep as a set or mount coins in a gold frame and wear on a chain. Make the 1 Reale into a ring.. The 8 Reale is a substantial piece in weight and size. The 4 reale and 1 reale have great detail. AS A NOTE: after studying 100’s of images of 1715 reales, most did not fare well in the ocean for 250 years. The majority have less detail than these offered in this listing. Hence I have shifted the grading standard of these vs those from Atocha, and etc. These, as stated above COA, are some of the finer examples. Please examine photos fully for additional condition information. May arrive in recycled packaging. These were part of a smoke free and virus free collection.
