    NC Spanish 1/2 Reale - Cuff Button UPDATE!

    So it turns out this 1/2 Spanish Silver Reale, was turned into a cuff button. I found this coin/button on New Years Day 2016 in Rolesville, NC, and posted on here, but after viewing under a USB microscope you can clearly see a round solder mark, where a shank would have been attached. This 1/2 Reale is very worn down, the partial shield and crown is visible on the back of the coin, but this would have been the front of the cuff button. (Shield facing outward) The front of the coin is mostly indistinguishable, but the solder mark is located in the center. I found a few other 1/2 reales on Treasurenet that had been turned into cuff buttons. WOW!, what history. I wonder if the person wearing this had multiple 1/2 Reale cuff buttons? Makes you wonder! I updated a youtube video of the original find, first ever video, but history was made, or at least discovered! Thanks for watching and for the historical interest.

    Man, I wish it had more detail; and so do you! I've pulled old silver coins that were as black as hell. Nice find.

    Target must be in the ground...Coil must swing over target...User must dig.

    Gold for the money...silver for the pleasure...copper for the history.

    I do not use the Like button. Proper intercourse should not be replaced by a click.
