    I found this Ottoman 1 Kurush in the local woods earlier this year. It weighs about 1.2 grams, a little under a half dime. This variety was minted in the 1860s. It’s interesting to imagine how it got all the way to the Eastern US.

    1780 Spanish Colonial, I believe this is a 1/2 reale. I found this hunting an old baseball field used by a local semi-pro team back in the 20's. Now it's just a hole in the woods with an access lane. Sorry if these post sideways lol, I never know.

    Smallest silver...I have some old Canadian fish scale nickels also. Found 4 so far, all with the AT pro and 2 tiny sterling medallions. The religious one opens up and has a gem stone on the bottom. Click image for larger version.

    hard to beat
    clipped cob - if you took a 1/2 reale and clipped off the round edges
    its known as a "short bit" and you could buy a pint of grog with it

    very close - it probably is size of the star on the 3 center -
    will tell you - thank God for pinpointer - it was completely black
    and found in farm field just after thaw so it was very muddy
    i had just gotten my Garrett pinpointer (the black model) yrs ago
    and chased it around a little with machines pinpointer - thought i might have a piece
    of lead shot - pulled pin pointer out and bingo - but just thought it was a piece of junk
    got back to car and showed my buddy what i had been chasing around - then i saw the cross
    i have found spanish silver before - even some cut but never like this
    on it - not valuable but nice conversation piece

    guy really knew how to stretch a dollar - pieces he cut off would have been even smaller

    Ive found my share of cut in half coppers and seen tons by others over the yrs
    but you dont see many quartered coppers

    I was doing some research long ago and came across some pages from early 1700s journal
    and it had going rates (mostly with Indians) for items
    it said what they would give the Indians for stuff and what they would ask them for other items
    it wasnt all trade like people think - we started giving them coins and them getting them back
    and of course early settlers screwed them back then too
    one entry was
    sold Indian one musket - then repaired musket... right after - probably flint fell out and seller charged arm and a leg for another
    one spot it had 4 apples for a KG - so I guess you could get one for 1/4
