    So my local jewelry seller, or as I refer to her my supplier and enabler, lol, had a few bits and pieces for me last week, amongst them this cufflink. I thought it was a fantasy piece, even though she kept insisting it was a real coin. When I looked at the back, well it does seem to be a real coin. I think the front says Carolus and there's some other lettering then Rex, and the year 1788. From what I've found on the Interwebz, it's a Spanish/Mexican coin called a Real? Don't know if it's worth anything, especially in this condition, and converted into a cufflink. Any information greatly appreciated. I thought it was a handsome piece in any case, would have loved to have the set. I hope you enjoyed seeing it, and thanks for looking.

      CW deleted a tribute post for my beloved doggy Tango who passed sunday...
      I said I planed to delete it after some days, but they did it before I could thank all for the so kind words posted!

      Oh kyratango, I am so sorry to hear of your little dog passing. I didn't get to see the tribute thread, either. Deepest sympathies for your loss.

      Requiescat in pace, Tango, beloved friend of kyratango.

      The coin looks like an 8 maravedis 1788 of the Segovia mint. It is a copper coin that looks gold plated.

      Kyratango, I lost a beloved cat not too long ago, still mourn her. Very hard to lose one of our companions. Can't wait to see her on the other side.
