RIC 310
  Gartner 8. Nov. 2019, 16:28

Attributed to Basil II and Constantine VIII AD 976-1028.

Sorry. I typed 1718 but meant 1717-1723. The transition of the Galano design changed that year (1717). going from the original type, with std tressures and an orcled cross, to the high ornate variety.
:)
  CaptainMyCaptain 7. Nov. 2019, 10:03

This variety is EXTREMELY RARE and really shows the connection of the de Leon family. Note the lions and Castles within the shield. They are Mexico City punches for the Galano's of Jose de Leon 1718-23, as well as the lions and castles used for the Tax stamps found on Mexican ingots. They appear on this one, super rare variety of Santiago de Guatemala 8 Reales of 1734. You can see the exact same punches here
https://www.acsearch.info/search.html?id=3580931
upon the Galano of J. You will also note, the tressures of the 1717 onwards type Galanos are the same tressures that later appear on the Cortada! aka Klippe coinage.

Sorry, I meant that the date reads QIQI for 1616. It is in reverse, or reading counter clockwise.
  CaptainMyCaptain 31. Oct. 2019, 23:15

I still dispute that the date is 1617. Quadra died in 1616. The "retrograde" 6's are in fact, his assayers mark stamp Q, with the date rendered IQIQ for 1616. I have never seen the "7" on this issue. It also makes more sense, as previously mentioned that Q died in 1616. Dates were NOT added randomly. Like the assayers mark, they were placed last just before the dies were put to use. I believe the date was experimental. But most importantly, this makes the first date for Potosi 1616 and not 1616 - if I am in fact correct, which I believe I am having seen this coin.

Needs to be noted this is not Rincon, but Leceta. 1593-95. Rincon coinage is ALL of the Lima style, with no H in hispan. And R is typically right. :)

This is the coin 496 illustrated in Ziegler "Münzen Kilikiens aus kleineren deutschen Sammlungen" (1989), and from the so called "Silifke hoard". A undocumented hoard sold to german coin dealers in 1987/1988 and partly reconstructed by Ziegler.

Misattributed. Phanebal never holds right hand like this.
