Coins of this type are generally found struck over Spanish Colonial 8 reales.  (British controlled the silver mines; Brazil had to use foreign coins as planchets for its coins.)  If the undertype can be identified, the coin commands a significant premium.  
Under the U. S. laws, Brazilian 960 reis were not legal tender--unless a Spanish 8 reales undertype was visible!
