What a tremendous amount of engraving. It is worth enlarging the pic too fully appreciate the work. The photos do not show the depth of the 2 deep rings running around the coin, but the original weight would be just over 27 grams and this now weighs just 22 grams, which gives some indication of the amount of engraving performed.

 

Not that common to find an 8 reales love token and 1812 counterstamped too boot.

This seems like a lost art form today.

 

Imagine how many hours and the kind of patient, careful, precisely detailed work that was required to make that!
