Question
could you give me any information on a Brazilian coin from the 1700s, 10 real, one side has a crown over an X, the other has a globe with a grid and what looks like a sash with the following: PECVNIA.TOTVM.CIRCVMIT.ORBEM

Thanks so much!

Answer
Hi Evan,
This would be a copper 10 reis. There were several types from the early 1700's up into the 1800's. Value depends on the date and condition, which are not mentioned here. If you can upload a clear picture of the coin I can certainly grade and value it.
Thanks for the question! :)

Expertise

My specialty is world coins from the 18th to 20th centuries, primarily non-US foreign coins and related areas such as errors and exonumia (tokens, medals, etc.). I can answer questions relating to identification, grading, selling, preservation and evaluation of such items. In addition to catalog value, I can give you the practical market value and trends for specific types of coins. I will also take questions regarding counterfeits (both modern and antique) and on how to identify them. I am NOT knowledgeable in paper money/banknotes, ancient or "shipwreck" coins. Thank you.
