    1793 Spanish 2 real

    Very lucky find i would have never dreamed of digging, found this in the middle of the woods where nobody goes next to a 250 some year old tree. 2 feet from the edge of a 30 ft cliff we found this 1 inch underground.

    Great find, especially for Ohio, they are out there, but pretty rare dig in Ohio. Congrats on getting into the 1700's club.

    I was lucky enough to pull a Real from a curb strip here in town back in 2016. I was shocked when I wiped that real thin disk and saw a date of 1780. You better believe I broke out in a happy dance and had to post it up on a group chat my friends and I have going.
