    2 Weeks in Mexico produced some bucket list coins

    Visited Mexico this past October for 2 weeks, conditions were not the best neither my reason for visiting. Foliage and plants double me in size and those who know me know im a big guy. Very limited access basically just where the tractor tracks passed and a few corn cut fields. The outings added up to maybe 4 or 5 hours. Here is an overview of the best finds

    The lead came in form of bullets and round ball, don't know the age on them, but I suspect some are old, a lead soldier also made himself present.

    The buttons showed up in the form of 3 early to mid 1900s iron back buttons, an even more modern cloth cover button also with an iron back, The best buttons are the small button that looks like the upper part of women body that us men love so much and the ball button missing its shank.

    Finally the coins are as follow, 5 Centavos from 1955, a 1942 Un Centavo that cleaned up really nice, My first Jalisco (Thats my home state ) state copper from 1834 1/4 Real, and Big counterfeit 8 Reales from the Guanajuato mint dated 1850 that really broke me, because it was not silver, but Oh well a fake 8 reales is better than none, This is the coin I always wanted to find, a Mexican Republic 8 Reales thats why I chose this name when I created my Tnet account. HH and GL to all.

    Great hunts, Reales! Certainly a lot of neat stuff there. And O...what a heart-breaker on the counterfeit ! Still, an impressive find, might be rarer than the REAL McCoy...Congrats...Ddf

    That crucifix could be quite old! Same goes for one of the rings! My oldest ring was from the 15th century and I looks quite similar to your ring, and Iv'e seen medieval crucifix come up from the ground looking a little bit like yours. And btw, that real is an really nice find!

    Yes, kind of like it now, its cleaning ok, it came out of the ground looking just like a copper, but after some cleaning the thin silver layer is poping out.

    No this is the same locations that I visited a couple months ago, very close to my house in rural Mexico, places that im sure had never had a detector on the ground.

    As it came out of the ground , wished i had pictures, but totally forgot, It looked just like a copper, so i knew right away it was a bogus piece.
