    Still in disbelief. And I think it is a cob not "cobb". My bad. Details....
    At around 1:30 pm this afternoon I loaded my Minelab SovGT battery pack with fresh batteries. I must admit, I "mixed" with 4 energizers and 4 duracell red jobbers. The clips on the battery pack were broken but my back-up pack was at home. I slammed the battery pack into the machine and placed my ghetto headphones over my ears. Mosquitos swarmed and attacked me through the deet barrier that greased my body. Within 5 minutes I dug a target that sounded like a modern .22 caliber bullet. It was not. It was a shotgun shell. A few minutes later, a shell from a modern deer round.
    My mind wandered as I adjusted my expectations from treasures to "just a great day outside".
    The next target sounded like copper. Six inches later I held gold roundness in my hand. I remember thinking "wow, this is heavy". I looked down and saw those pillars. I had found silver before, but never gold. I knew.
    I looked at both of my digging partners and said "oh s...". I said that several times.
    We gathered around and hugged it out. All 3 of us happily married (to our wives). But one of those moments...
    I never put the headphones back on, for that would be greedy. I walked around the woods digesting the event. Walking around in a state of excitement as well as a state of some sort of survivor's guilt. I got over that really quickly.

    Aaaaand...banner vote in. Nice narrative. You seem like a good egg! I'm happy for you, and hope to see this up top in less than 24 hours. What a feast for the eyes.

    Both of those finds are banners in my opinion. Do you have any more pics of the slave tag?

    Excellent story, amazing coin, no brainer banner, but can you explain the sort of land 'site' that a Spanish Gold Coin can pop up from? (early settlement, Inn, Market)
