Nice one. Pistareens are almost always found complete in the Northeast while down south they tend to be cut up for change

Default Looks like a counterfeit coin to me

The date looks like it punched through to the reverse???? Looks weird to me

You’re looking at it wrong, I did the same thing. What you’re looking at on the reverse is the crown. Look again, the area that looks “punched through” would be behind the crown. Like looking through the voids and seeing the backdrop.

Yeah yeah yeah. But we all know that reales, LCs, busts, and colonials are brimming EVERYWHERE, in every sandbox, in Rhode Island. So what credit is there for that ? Eh ?
