They say this could be the coin that George Washington threw across the river.

My "Pillars" 8 Reales is dated 1774, a nice surprise. Obverse in better condition than Apmex sample photo, reverse has a little corrosion, I gotta wonder if this is a shipwreck coin? I enjoy this coin and will share it with kids for a history lesson that they will actually enjoy and absorb. Thumbs up!
