    1737 Spanish Pistareen, 2 Reales, just dug it!!!

    Just got back from a spot Iv'e been digging for a while and moved to a different area. I have found a couple of colonial coppers and a 2 cent piece. Haven't found any old silver. I have slowed my coil swing down and got a faint, but solid signal 6 inches down. My whites M6 read 1,10. I was hoping Indean Head or Silver dime. I dug the plug then scooped some more dirt from the hole. First thing I saw was a cool piece of an old plate. Got excited, then brushed the dirt away and saw the edge of a large silver coin. Picked it up and saw the shield and couldn't believe my eyes. I had butterflies in my stomach. Made a couple of phone calls then tried to detect a bit more. I couldn't concentrate so had to head home. This is now my favorite find. Finding this coin in Boston makes me wonder who's hands this coin could have passed through. John Hancock, Paul Revere, Samual Adams, the list goes on and on. Historical value= Priceless!!!!!!
    Thanks for looking.
