    2BUCKET LIST COINS!!! 1875 20 CENTER..AND 1799 2REALE

    Today went back to the pond were I found the 8 reale a few months ago.
    It was really hot, and things were slow. So I decided to go into the woods a little to get out of the sun.
    I am so glad I did.. 5 minutes in there I get real nice high tone on the CTX 1345/1246. New it was going to be silver or a LC, it said 6inches, so I take my time and cut a nice plug flip it over a right there was a handsome guy with a big nose looking right at me..LOL the 2reale!!! This is my first 2reale, found half ones 1reales, cut 4reale, and my big 8reale..
    You know I was happy..
    Especially since I whatched CJON, pull a 1728 Pistareen out right in front of me at this site with my machine!!!! Lol.
    So now I am really excited and I am going to slow down and really pound this area.. About 20min later I get almost the same signal, and my heart is pounding, it tells me this one is 8inch down, i cut the plug and its even deeper. I found it and take it out I look at it a i think its a one reale..
    I wipe a little dirt of and see seated liberty, and say oh a quarter cool.
    Put it in my bag and keep detecting.
    Not much after that.
    So I go to my truck and text Bill D a pic of the 2reale. Then he calls me and were talking. I tell him i also found a seated quarter and i grap it out of my pouch and say hey it seems smalller? Thats weird..
    I turn it on to the back a can just make out 20 ce..
    I say get the hell out of here, its a 20 center... I always wanted to find one since i started detecting. After I found my first 2center, i found out they made different monies..lol
    2 cents, 3cents, half cents, half dimes and the elusive 20centers!!!!
    Now my weird cents are COMPLETE. .LOL.
    Thanks for looking and enjoy the pics.

    Really envy you swingers back east, so much more history. That 20 center is a rare coin to find. Congrats on some great coins.

    Wow Vino Wow. That's got to be a banner find there. I'm voting it Banner. It must be Instant Karma from the headphones you sent that I received yesterday. Again Congratulations and thank you

    George - that was so cool to be talking with you on the phone at the instant you realized what you had. And I was just as excited as you! As you know, these are very rarely seen and, although its not an extremely valuable coin, it's a remarkable find for sure. You see gold coins posted here all the time, but how many of these do you see? Virtually none. Based on that I'm submitting my banner vote. And your big-nose 2 reale is an outstanding find in itself. Many congrats on an incredible hunt and for these 2 amazing finds. And I really appreciate you taking the time to share your excitement with me over the phone. I know you'll be enjoying the rest of your evening if you can get your heart rate to slow down. See ya ....
