    Did some door knocking today first house first permission was told have at it after a couple hours and an indian, a barber dime ,and a merc. I started swinging near where they had the gas line marked that seemed like it eas dug at an earlier time, about 4 to 5 feet from the line i got a booming hit at about 4 inches and this was it .Not sure if it's real or not but got my heart pumping about the size of a half dollar kinda heavy and why would there have been a hole in it then filled

    If there's no dirt under your nails, you're not trying hard enough.

    Looks legit. If it's real then it's from Spain's Mexico mint. Strange part is the plug in the hole. Con men in the early days of numismatics would sometimes plug the holes of old and rare coins in the hopes of selling them for more money. Coins with holes often were worth less to collectors then intact coins. I know in the very early days the men used lead to plug the holes. They would either pound the lead into the hole with a hammer or they would heat up the coin and let the lead melt into the hole. Bet that coin has a very interesting tale to tell.

    Oh my! that is an awesome and huge cob. I don't think that I have seen one that big before. Any chance you can weigh it on an accurate gram scale? Congratulation on a killer find.

    Maybe not holed, and plugged, maybe a "natural" planchet flaw.

    "
    Planchet flaw

    An irregular hole in a coin blank, sometimes the result of a lamination that has broken away.'
