That's a Spanish real not a Mexican one. Right?

Either way, that is a spectacular old silver find!!

Mostly minted in South America, this one in Mexico City. They have a whole chart on dates, values and origin. 100-75$ on market today but worth a million to me

I didnít know anything about it when I dug it, knew I had something when I saw the date. A quick google degree and I learned a lot
