    BOOYEAH!!! A Spanish Cob from the Frozen Earth! New High Res. Pics!

    I was able to get out for an hour this afternoon to try my field one last time before the frost really set in. The ground was frozen to about 5 inches but it was manageable. First signal was a little choppy but was good enough to dig. This is something I've been hoping to find for 7 years. It's a Spanish cob!! I think it's a 1 reale from 1674...which would make it my new oldest silver! Condition is amazing but unfortunately my camera is still not downloading to my laptop so I had to use my BlackBerry. I'm absolutely gob smacked with this find!

    I was finally able to download the pics from my camera. Thanks.

    Super Congrats on finding the Pillars and Waves Cob!!!!! They to me are one pretty coin, still awaiting my first cob.

    Beautiful Cob! 8)

    Is it a one real or a two reales?

    Might one venture to query if that is a corn field find? CornCob field?
