Unique ID: CORN-CA6265

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A copper eight maravedis of Philip IV (1621-1665) of Spain, dated to 1626 to the right of the shield on the reverse. The surface of the coin is heavily clipped and worn so that the numerals indicating the value of the coin are illegible but to the left of the shield on the obverse might possibly by part of a letter B for the mint of Burgos.

CayĆ³n (2005) illustrate a similar eight maravedis coin of Philip IV, minted at Burgos in 1625, on p.629, no.5328.
