    EXCELLENT finds Herbie and I'm very glad to see you back. I was afraid you had gone into hibernation for the winter-LOL. Great relics and outstanding coin recoveries. HH, Quindy.
    Everyone will make a good find on occasion. The challenge is to find CW relics consistently.

    Thanks again all For the Replies and Help
    I gave this piece about 60 seconds at 4.5 volts, began to see some bare metal and stopped the process.
    IP, I believe this is a KM 52, see 3 dots between the arms of the cross,
    POR visible to the lower left of the sheild.
    Got the 400 on right and blank area on left where on the 19th century ones, 400 is on left and date on right, these also have a squared off bottom on the shield where mine is round.
    as far as the images in and around the sheild,
    I cannot see any more detail. do you think more time in the Electro will help or hurt?
    About the Billon questions, got a little edge rub on my test stone, gave a blazing red result, this only occurs on .900 + silver.
    Here's a load of new photos, as each shows a different section clearly.
    I am VERY pleased to have retreived a Decent Colonial hammered silver or gold for each of my years detecting, The Passion is High Again

    Hi SS
    I think the O you are referring to on your coin is part of the '400' denomination,
    I see the entire number on both our coins,
    Great Find there, and thanks for posting the photo, slight difference in position of legend around shield, I can see a few letters on mine, POR starting at lower left of shield, as in the #KM 52 example, yours is in much better shape , than mine or the examples in the book )
    HH to you

    I'd probably leave it and be happy. Better like that than really over cleaned.

    There's no question it's early, all you have to do is look at the crown.

    Thanks to all,
    I think I got my 2012 coin of the year early, we'll see....
    I grin whenever I think of the word 'Cruzado'

    Re: 1600s Portugese Hammered Silver 400 Reis

    Congrats Herbie on another well-deserved find. I have been vacant from the site for quite a while due to work but hope to be at it again in a few months. Spending time in research that should pay off this Spring. Not sure if we are heading that way this Summer again but sure would like to. That coin should be up on the Banner!

    Re: 1600s Portugese Hammered Silver 400 Reis

    Congrats on your 400 year old coin find Herbie!

    No matter what you find man, it always seems to generate discussion and debate!

    Take care buddy,
    Dave
    My passion is for hunting relic sites, as I feel the imprint of past lives often lingers there!
    Detectorists finds, are the background noise of antiquity!
    Don't question it ... just dig it!
