A Post Medieval Spanish 1 real of Ferdinand VI (AD1746-1759), dating AD 1748. The coin has been severely damaged so that not much remains. A crowned Spanish shield is visible on the obverse with the letter I to the left, with rosettes above and below. The inscription is illegible but would have read FRD·VI·D·G·HISP·ET IND·R. The reverse depicts crowned globes flanked by crowned and bannered pillars with royal crowns, over water. The inscription again is illegible but would have read VTRA/QUE VNUM (both into one), possibly with a G to the right of the date 1748. The G would indicate it was minted in Guatemala. Cayon no. 10263; Callico no, 527.
