    Think Im gonna call this KG field. More KGs, knee buckle and mystery silver

    Just had to leave work early today to give this new site more love. Scored the sweet complete knee buckle frame, toasted copper, KGII, KGIII and more including a bunch of stuff Ive not photographed yet. The small silverish melted or badly worn "coin" kinda looks Spanish with a pillar on one side and (17)61 on the other

    Thanks on the help with id everyone. This is now my third Spanish silver but all without a date It weighs about 2 grams so Im thinking its too heavy to have been a 1/2 real so maybe clipped 1. Also, the pillar and waves cobs like this one were produced well into the 1700s even after milled coinage was introduced around 1732

    Thanks. It definitely is that type as the numbers I saw below where the cross should be seem to correspond with it 1661 possibly Seems like cobs from the 1660s are the most commonly found ones anyway
