Spain (1566)-G cuartillo
This specimen is a Spanish quarter real struck at Burgos, Cuenca, Granada (shown here), Segovia, Toledo and Valladolid in 1566. As thirty four maravedis made a real, this coin was worth 8½ maravedis. IT was theoretically made from vellon (debased silver) but we don't see any evidence of anything other than copper on this specimen.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
Catalog reference: Cayón no. 3358.
