Spanish Reales

I recently finished a rough "type set" of Spanish colonial coins as I now have a 1, 2, 4, and 8 Real coin from the colonial period. The smaller denominations are very worn and the 8 Real is chopped-marked to death, but you have to start somewhere!

I bought one (I think it was a 2 reales) at a small local coin show. The guy didn't know what it was, and "didn't think it was really silver;" so I said how bout a buck? Took it home, attributed it, put it in a 2x2, took it back the next month's show where there was a big world coin dealer, and sold it for $15 in trade on British coins. Sweet.

Those old Spanish reales are fun because of all the possible mints. Is it Peru? Guatemala?
Where are your types from?
PICS PLEASE!!!

I'd love to pick up a piece of eight ,preferably all eight pieces intact.

I don't think you can find one for under $50 though.
