    Seated Quarter, Counterfeit 8 Reales, Seated Dime, Civil War!

    Hello All,

    Got out with Shangalang for a land hunt after my water adventure. Was hotter than hell at 95 degrees. Luckily the finds were hot too. Here's the video:



    Shangamufugus dug a nice canteen spout and the 1842-O Seated Dime and I got a decent (although dented) Eagle CW button. Also eyeballed a nice early marble (hand made marble) along with a handful of other marbles and a paste "jewel" setting from a ring. Unfortunately eyeballed some killer bitters bottles (broken by the plow). Got a nice high reading and dug a discolored, silver dollar-sized disc. Even though it has no detail whatsoever, there is an edge design, and it is exactly the right diameter for an 8 Reales. After some baking soda and aluminum foil treatment to remove the corrosion, it was silver-colored (obviously made of some sort of debased silver alloy). I'm thrilled to have a counterfeit 8 in the collection. Seems like most of these coins were counterfeits unless cut wedges. Oh, and I found Jesus along the way. After lunch I got a solid 79 in the bottom of a cane row and popped out a beautiful 1856-O Seated Quarter (my 5th one ever). Then I scratched out a Mcclellan saddle piece (bent, but I straightened it--see display case photos below). Also walked up on a brass head staring up at me from the cane row!

    Enjoy the pics and corny video.

    Here's the big 8 fresh out of the ground, after cleaning, and a close-up of the circle/dash edge design visible. Diameter is 38mm and the weight is 25 grams.

    Thanks buddy! When I started repeatedly putting my gloves on the wrong hands, I knew it was time to go home and cool off from the heat!

    Very nice group of finds, Buck, I especially like the seated quarter and the old crucifix. You guys definitely earned yourselves an ice cold beer after that sweaty hunt.

    Wow that would be a insane day for me. I can even imagine a spot like that. Was it in a cane field? I live in La and if that's were I have to start going to get finds like that I'll have to find one. Congratulations to you both.
