Hi. I have found these 2 coins of 8 maravedis, which both came as being from Trujillo, but with a different mint mark.
Is the one with .M. actually from a different mint? As I have checked, it does not match Madrid either.
Thanks.

Left is Trujillo as noted on carton: TRo monogram with M - Cayón 5432. Right is Cordoba: M - Cayón 5419. Madrid was also using M, but with a crown or star above.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

According to www.enumismatic.com , there's no M symbol for Córdoba; in fact, the only mint chief listed there was active in 1663 and 1664. That M would be for Martín de Macaya, who cas active in Trujillo from 1661 to 1664.

So then both coins are from the Trujillo mint?
