    1778 Spanish 8 reales

    I had a amazing hunt today with some friends at a new cellar hole property. We all did very well and all went home with old coppers and old silvers. My find of the day and i still cant believe i found one is a 1778 mexico city mint 8 reales. I never thought i would get one of these. It was a good signal but i had to work for it under tree roots. I knew what it was though as soon as it. It is in great shape and the pictures don’t do it justice at all. Thanks for looking!

    Wow, that is an hard-to-find coin that's also in terrific condition. Banner-worthy in my book. Big congrats!

    Awesome. Always wondered the circumstances where a coin that size could be lost. Especially considering how much money that was back then. Lost in a snow storm or intentionally buried perhaps but who cares its yours now

    Wow K1DDO. There's not likely a lot of those sitting in the dirt in Nova Scotia but you nailed it. Well done sir. Well done.

    Very, very nice coin. Largest I have ever dug is a 2 reale cob. Doesn't Carlos have a big nose? Bet that signal blew your ears off.
