The specimen shown is a Spanish real struck in 1734 at the Seville mint. Assayer PA is recorded for the years 1731-1736. These coins were lower in fineness than the colonial issues (Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, etc.) and thus were discounted. There is no reason to think that these coins are rare but they are very difficult to find in the American numismatic marketplace and are likely seriously underpriced.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 3.38 g, .833 fine silver, .090 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Cayón-8510, KM 354.
