    Looks like it was in a fire--but still a nice find

    Please don't go there. Heck, if a reale is "proof of a treasure" that is "sure to be closeby" then Rick & Marty ought to be coming out to CA where I hunt and find them. And fields all over the east coast for that matter. And .... presto, there's reales dug all the time.

    So please don't show them this coin. Lest they launch into more sure-fired-conspiracy bologna, haha

    Aren't reales gold? Or are they silver? Gold would not look like that..... silver?..... I don't know. TTC

    Reales are silver (or even copper if you're talking denominations like 1/4 reales sometimes). Escudos would be their denominational value that was gold coins.

    Good to see you picked up on it. I know a little about the subject but backed off because some here can give more definitive info Than I. Tnx, Tom. TTC
