MEXICO. Cob 4 Reales, ND (1589-98)-Mo F. Mexico City Mint. Philip II. PCGS Genuine--Environmental Damage, AU Details.
KM-36; Cal-508. Weight: 12.87 gms. This Cob is struck on a ragged planchet but contains generous and boldly-struck detail. The obverse shows an impressive Habsburg shield along with sharp and clear mintmark, denomination, and initial. The reverse is just as pleasing, offering a bold cross with castles and lions along with an unbroken "IISPANIARV" on the legend. The surfaces are attractively toned to a light gray with darker highlights around the devices. A small corroded cavity on the obverse rim accounts for the grade, but is easily overlooked due to the detail and eye appeal this charming coin otherwise displays.
