    8 Reales Dug Today... Oh Boy!

    Well lets just say it's been a long wait to hunt this site. I received permission to hunt this place about 2 months ago. Well work and timing and soybeans were always getting in the way. Well last week the property owner called to tell me the soybeans had been cut. i said i'll be there as soon as I can. Well a couple more days of rain and work later, I finally made it today with Buckleboy. Well it started off slow and we couldn't find the sweet spot. Well it wasn't to much longer when I found a flat button. Well a little while later BBoy hit a IH penny. Well soon there after so did I, a beautiful 1892. Well a little while later I had to call old BBoy over to show him a sweet find. Out pops this baby.
    8 Reales

    I'll let BBoy finish the rest of the day cause it was all his. I'm just happy to find the 8.

    Happy Hunting

    Soy beans cut at last. That is one very very nice coin. What are the odds of that coming out of the ground in that shape? Nice recovery for sure.

    Re: 8 Reales Dug Today... Oh Boy!

    Nice finds! Very exciting to find silver that big!
    I found an 1889 8-reales about 2 years ago, with a bullet still embedded in it.
    The Injun looks pretty darn good too!
    Congrats!

    1823 was the first year for the Cap and Ray design. Yours looks like it is. Also looks like a Durango mintmark.
    If you get a depth reading of four inches and you've dug down two feet and widened your hole several times and still get a signal, GIVE UP!
