Details

Spain. 1760-JP 2 reales or pistareen. Madrid mint. Choice Extremely Fine. Struck under Carlos III, this pistareen type was produced using an edge mill and a screw press, producing a much different looking coin than earlier types coined on a roller press with no edge device. Very pleasing light silver gray with a bit of peripheral toning around the obverse, much more notable toning framing the reverse. Some hints of lustre persist around the borders. A little scrape is noted on the rim atop the date, some very minor hairlines localized at central obverse, no other significant distractions. The strike is good and the detail is strong. Pistareens, of course, circulated far and wide in early America, moreso than any other small silver coin, making them a must-have for any collection focusing on the American colonies.
