Hi guys. Do y'all think this is a real 1736 Exano Spanish coin, I think it's called, or might it be counterfeit? Thanks.

 There were  many counterfeits of these made. In fact Disney produced them for it's Pirates of the Caribbean souvenir shop.

Did you test it with a magnet to see if it is silver? That would at least eliminate some of the counterfeits.

I haven't bought it yet, am supposed to meet the guy later today. I suppose the magnet and the drop test are about my only options. Good to know about the Disney thing. Thanks.

If you're supposed to meet a guy who wants to sell it, it's not up to you to prove it's real or fake. It's up to him to prove it's real. If he doesn't do that to your satisfaction, he probably has no idea. If he has no idea, why should you believe him? Careful you aren't about to pay some tuition.

I can't tell if that is supposed to be a Peruvian 8 Reales,  or 8 Escudos, or something else entirely, but it does not look real to me.

That is just my uninformed opinion, though.

I am with JKK - if the seller does not show definite proof of authenticity, I would walk away.
