    1770 8 Reale found today!!!!!!

    God was on my side for this one guys. HOLY CRAP!!!!! A solid 97-99 on the vdi. Was expecting a hot rock, they give off those funky signals. But to my surprise, at this pounded out spot, with only 2 buttons found last time out here, and 4 today, I dig a 1770 silver 8 REALES. And it's completely intact with amazing detail!!!

    I've been hunting this place since February and it's dried up a bit, but this find was just what I needed to NOT give up on it just yet! Thanks for looking!

    What the heck is an 8 Real doing in West By God? No matter the answer, kudos to you for pulling that beauty. Is that your 1st coin from the 1700s? It looks like you burned one in celebration prior to the photo-op. You could pass as my younger brother, I had to take a double look at your pics.
