    First Spanish Silver & Twin Large Cents

    You know when you get that sudden urge to go hunt because you've been thinking about a spot you've most likely been before? Trust your intuition and go! Got to one of my newest private properties that I recently got permission for. This is the place that has produced two other large cents (1837 / 1822) two indian heads (1862 / 1886) and a v nickel (1902). It's an old farm and this particular field I'm hunting is a little unkempt. Most areas have the dreaded grass lumps from years of neglect. If you've been there you know what a pain it is to get a decent signal. Anyway, I hit an area that I hadn't had much luck in but I was confident in all I've learned with my machine and took it nice and slow. Target 1 is coming in at 81-83 on the ATPro. Five inches down I see a fat rim and new I had a large. Knock the dirt off and see clearly 1820. This is when the second wind kicks in and soon enough I've got another good high tone. It's jumping from 75-77 and although I'm hearing it on my propointer I can find it. I finally isolate it to a little clod of dirt and when I break it I see a very thin edge and it sure looks silver! Carefully I removed it and could once again clearly see a date of 1786. I sat down, shaking violently of course haha, the middle of the coin is beat up pretty bad but the edges read the familiar Carolus III. I'm blown away but I put it safely away and tried to get back to hunting. I'm up and at it again and I hear a squeal faintly as I passed a section of grass. Moved in a bit and found the rest of the signal. Blaring at 82-83 and at 5 inches again I see another large cent. Once again a legible date and I'm surprised to see a second 1820. Pulled the two buttons nearby but I don't know much about them yet. Haven't even rinsed them yet but here they are. Thanks for reading this far down your browser. ha

    Sweet recovery. The large cent on the left has great detail, but both appear to be in better than average "dug" condition. Congrtats!

    Checked it out this morning and I'll definitely give it a shot. I'll post a finished pic eventually of the buttons and see what you think. I've already been able to read two quality marks. One reads "rich gold colour" and the other is "double gilt, 2nd quality". One other looks to read something alone the lines of "treble gilt extra". This farm I hit was a test run for me and I'll take older copper over silver some days. I appreciate the history so much. Thanks for all the comments and help.

    4 largies, a v nickel, and some Indians so far but the relics and buttons are incredible.
