    Spanish Treasure Coin ?

    Got a chance to hunt this morning before the rain, called my hunting partner for the last 41+ years... (My Dad) He has been there through thefruitless days and through the golden days.... This day wasn't any diferent than the others except the fact I am noticing that it takes him a few more minutes to get into and outa the truck... for you sName:  cross coin 2012 (4).JPG

ID:	681466ee he is going to be 81 this Novemeber..... He put on his happy face and says go get a good one..... (I think I did) This is where I need your help.... Never found one before, so I am not to sure what I am looking, at or what I have... In fact it may not be anything good at all... but my hopes are high... We didn't find many coins, or any silver, or jewelry, what we found was that we enjoy each others company more now than ever....... Here are a few pictures of the coin and a brief discription... It is paper thin, a little smaller than a U.S. Dime... not sure if it's silver,brass,or even bronze? It has a cross on one side and NO DATE..... on the other side it seems almost look like a miniture, but very worn standing liberty quarter... very strange... not even sure what side the date would be on if it had one... Thanks for looking and helping in advance.... Whydah

    Hard to say what it is. You might get some muratic acid, mix it 50/50 with water, and let it sit in there for 15 minutes or so. It wont hurt silver or copper. Rinse it good. Then try to get a pic. If it is getting better, put it back in. Rinse after a while. It may take a while. Try it with a VLF machine and see what it say it is.

    Even if it says junk, never trust a meter. Clean it up and see.

    You think your dad is getting older but I think he's just getting smarter. You get out first and dig up all the scrap he comes behind you and cleans up.

    Many Spanish coins and gold bars are not real. Look out.
