    Cob Coins

    If you couldn't already tell or just thought that age dealt a rough hand in the overall appearance of these coins - then you're not only wrong but in for a treat. Allow me to introduce the original "Treasure Coins" or better yet, the ancient epitome of not giving too much of an aesthetic shit. According to Phillip II and those who minted coins during his reign - the only real concern here was making sure that the cut of metal for each coin was of the correct weight before being hammer-struck between two crude dies and sent out into circulation. This resulted in what you see here, some of the most jacked-up and irregular legal tender known to man.
