Details

Mexico. 1757 MM 8 reales. Mexico City mint. AU-55 (PCGS). Pale violet, electric blue, and faded peach tones blend intensely over highly lustrous light silver gray fields. Finely detailed, an ideal high grade example of the most famous coin of the colonial era. A low spot on the obverse rim near 8:00 is a bit softly struck, some fine hairlines are seen, and a little batch of lines is detected under a glass above the obverse crown. Pillar dollars get very, very expensive in Mint State (not to mention just plain rare), so high grade pieces like this are in strong demand among collectors. The brightness of the toning does not turn up very vibrantly in the photograph, but suffice it to say this is one very pretty example of the first coin listed in the Redbook.
