    Never thought I would find one of these!! 1774!!!

    I cant believe this! I hit an old house off the main highway. didnt expect to find much. I found this small silver thing. I thought it was a medical pin because I didnt know what the symbol was on the back I had it for a couple weeks now and decided to bring it over to olekyground and to my surprise he said it was a "Spanish" Reale! the date is clear 1774! My oldest coin without a doubt!! I still cant believe this!

    congrats...a spanish is a good way to break into that club...
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.
