Here are a few pieces I picked up recently, minted by the Spanish in Mexico City.

1764 8 reales, this is a rare variety of that date that has a slightly different crown utop the globes.  I don't think the seller recognized it, or the price would have been higher.

1767 1/2 real.  According to the information I've gathered on this series, 1767 is the second rarest year of the set (1732-1771).  There are no recorded mintages so the rarest dates are a matter of conjecture.  My conjecture is based on about 4 years collecting data.

1735 1/2 real, final digit is a 5/4.  Overdating was common in certain years for all pillar denominations, the year 1735 is a good example of that.
