    8 Reales Club, I just joined

    Like most of my posts this one starts the same....

    Me and ZDD...
    started out at 8:30 in hopes of finding something old. The first spot we went to looked good had promise, and was in a fairly good area, etc, but just didn't have it. Dave did get a clock gear there, I never dug a target. Dave got a 90's signal that I checked, and said "could be a 8 reale", turned out to be a brass ring. I said "one of these times it will be an 8 reale".

    Next spot, we call "french hill" as Dave got a 1677 french silver there last year, conditions were good better than they had ever been, level, and short grass. I got a signal that was high 90's, but did bounce all the way up to 99 which almost always means junk on my Omega. Not suggesting that I wouldn't dig, because targets were not that plentyful. I dug a plug the depth of a small hand trowel of 4 -5 inches, the pin pointer said target still in there, so I just sifted through the loose dry dirt with my left gloved hand, and out came a BIG round disk. For a second I thought aluminium, because I was expecting JUNK, then I saw Carolus face (as blind as I am) Yeah Babby !

    Wicked freekin awesome, I thought, 7 years, my first dollar sized coin, and still on my top ten list.

    I wasn't shaking like a lot of people say, but I was at the same time pretty excited, and tried to shout to Dave...he wasn't hearing none of that, with headphones on, so I pretty much ran over to him, mentioning the "ring" he had found earlier. He said did you find another, I said, "well almost" I got him to take off his glove and close his eyes, and dropped it in his hand.

    This has been a slow year for sure with the cold lasting so long, and then turning so hot so fast, bla, bla, bla.

    Anyway this is a find that is / was still on my top ten list so I am very happy today with what I have found. I didn't even take a camera with me today as it was so hot I didn't want to carry any extra gear, so I had to keep it dirty till home for pictures then a water soak for 5 minutes revealed a pretty nice coin.

    Yes we (I) did dig a few square nails, and one pewter button, the nails because of the spot being "nearly" hunted out, and so few targets left, but man am I glad we gave it one more shot.


    GOOD LUCK OUT THERE !
    Rick

    Beautiful coin. You did a great job on cleaning the dirt off. Did you just blast it under some water?

    To me this is a banner find, there are fewer 8Rs posted here then there are gold coins posted. The fact of the matter is that these monsters were just harder to loose then a gold coin so there are fewer of them in the ground.
    Awesome find Rick, maybe it will be my turn next.
    Banner vote going in.
