    Found two olddd silver half dimes after the reale

    So all in all it was a stellar weekend for me. I was of course glad to find the 1848 1 reale but have been longing for and old silver coin from the US and ended up with two! We went back to the same place I dug the reale and I dug these two coins within just a few feet of each other so I figured they might have all been on the same piece of string. One was an 1841 and the other an 1847.

    Thanks Gary. I was tickled to say the least. We ended up going a little later than we wanted so we will be back! We found several pieces of brass horse task a piece so we know the place has not been hunted well.

    OMG, congrats on digging those 2 seated half dimes CG. Awesome scores. Sad to say the seated half dime still eludes my coil.

    There could well be more from that same leather cord or hemp necklace ! Congratulations , I too think it is highly likely that these came off the same cord . I'd be camping out at that site for a while !

    Betcha one will come your way. Thanks for the nice comments,I’ve been grinning from ear to ear all day. Very old coins are hard to come by in our area for those of us that don’t hunt much.( That would be us.)

    You put your coins on a string so as to not lose them.
    Then you lose the string,, wow, that must have hurt.
    Congratulations on some really Super finds.

    I think your theory is spot on, that all three coins were lost at the same time. I also think three pieces of pre-1850 silver found together is worthy of banner consideration. Congrats on the great finds.
