    Sorry it took so long to get the pictures. Oddly enough, when I layed out the Reale and though "ya, know, I have found all of my best coins in the same 1 or 2 acre area and each of them basically applies to this thread. So, I gathered all of the coins I have found in this little honey hole and I was amazed. My last post mentioned "3 bucket list coins" all found in this area and my oldest coin went from 1857 to 1828 to 1796 in 3 weeks. Anyone that detects I think would call it a summer, hang the old detector and look at your coins on the couch all winter looking for the next great spot...I don't think I can do it though.... I digress. So, here is the picture of my finds at my Honey Hole, they make up most of my best finds.

    Your oldest coin might be the chineese cash coin with the hole in it. If you post a clearer pic zoomed in on the front and back I can try to Id it for you. Might date into the early 1700's

    sorry it took so long, I have been so busy hunting I haven't pondered over some of these yet! so, here is the Chinese coin, on the reverse it is blank, the outer rim of the coin has a slight reveal that runs the entire coin, maybe a 1/16 of an inch or so. The front side is tough to see here, BUT, when I looked it up through the link, I can definitely see that the east and west symbol are pretty typical for most of the coins. The north and south symbol are the tough ones...and naturally the most worn. The north symbol has a couple close options, the south symbol it totally foreign to anything I have seen on the other coins. The south symbol (my spidey sense is telling me) is the important one? anyways, let me know and I will try to get another pic!Click image for larger version.

    Your coin is a Jen Tsung Chinese cash coin minted between 1796 and 1820. The photo of the coin is upside down, so the bottom symbol in the photo is really the top symbol on the coin.

    Congrats on a seated quarter, still have yet to find anything seated, must have been a rush finding that! Crazy how some very old items can be so shallow, and modern zincolns sometimes 8 inches deep.
