    Treasure coins...cut spanish silver, and 1659 marevedi in the same hole !!

    Oh brother....got down to a well known treasure beach. I knew they were in the middle of a beach renourishment that will seal this spot under rock, brick, and concrete. There was a slim chance that between back hoes and excavators that I might be able to sneak in and get a coin or 2 before this spot is done for good !! Well it was worth it and I got a 1659 marevedi and a cut spanish silver in the same hole...within 4 inches of each other !! What a thrill !! Click image for larger version.

    Both coins are uncleaned and as dug.....you can see that they were free of saltwater for the most part, as they are not to corroded. The marevedi is killer with all sorts of counter stamps and markings ive yet to decipher. Ill have to start researching to understand what im seeing. I guess there is a slight chance that this coin is a 1559...?? Not quite sure yet. Not sure how these coins were made but almost looks hammered. Click image for larger version.

    The cut silver does not show much right now but I can see some details struggling to come out. The faint print of a cross is there under a sulfide crust. Distinct cut marks on 2 sides....still wondering what denomination it is....not sure if ill ever know. What a thrill...getting right up in there during the dig and snatching some coins out !!Click image for larger version.

    Great job! Yes, both would have been hammered. Be careful cleaning the cob.

    Bart,

    Anything 1500/1600's this side of the pond deserves to be up top! No questions asked.....

    WOW! It sure looks like double 5's Bart. Huge congrats on the two great looking finds.

    Seriously I hope they don't use those dump truck loads for landfill cover someplace.

    I'd be following the next one out tomorrow.....just saying.

    What a day you had, it makes up for the skunkers.

    Thanks pepper.....I talked to those truck drivers....some fill went to miami and some to key west. If I'm lucky ill be able to get down and get permission to look through it gonna make a call in the morning !! I know who to call and ask....can't hurt to try. Otherwise yes it becomes fill....not the first time the fill has had treasure down here !!
