    Cut Pistareen, buttons and a silver monogrammed cuff-link

    My first ever Pistareen, she is beat up but I like it. Carolina Tom came up and we hooked up after the monsoon went through. Scrappy, Bartec, Tom and I will be hunting together tomorrow, so hopefully we will have some great finds. I know we are going to have a lot of laughs.

    I found a few other things, but I came home and have been working on the new house, I've got things that are out in my pouch.

    Enjoy the pix

    Awesome hunt today buddy, thanks for taking me along for the show. You got two killer pieces of silver. That monogrammed cuff link is a great find. That belonged to some fancy schmancy dude a couple of hundred years ago.

    I think that your coin is a 2R Ferdinand 7th.

    I’ll see you in the morning.

    Nice finds. Dont believe I have ever seen a pistareen from the 1800s posted before. I doubt many of those were in circulation or if they were even legal tender for that matter being debased silver and all

    It's been a whirlwind, I worked straight 15 hours Sat, did about 12 Sun. I managed to get enough done to free me up to hunt. You can join us, I forgot to PM you, you got lost in the whirlwind. Sorry, come join us tomorrow or Wed?

    I guess you think that old silver is copper, better look again Doc. Thanks either way.
