This is a (1729-30)-Mo R Mexico 4 Reales Silver Cob from the 1735 Dutch East Indiaman Vliegenthart Shipwreck, sunk off Zeeland, Netherlands, NGC VF30 (12.85g) [Very Fine 30]. The first two images are provided by the NGC Photography Team and can be downloaded. The cob itself is dateless; however, the assayer's mark gives the date range which is clear.
The shield is a little off center, but retains strong details for what is visible. The upper two quadrants in the cross are visible with a bit off centering and some darker looking residue/saltwater. There are a few glimpses of like a yellowish type tone in places and the cob has a nice diamond cut.
This is the only coin given a straight numerical grade with shipwreck certification for this particular date range and wreck. It is a total population of 1 (4/26/23). These are usually given details grades without numerals because of the shipwreck effect.
This coin comes in the NGC plastic slab with the special blue "Shipwreck Certification" label.
