    1652 cut tree coin and a Louis XIV 4 Sols

    Still in shock after tonights hunt. I knew this was a great spot but a little .5 gram piece of tree coin with the tree and the date and what I believe to be Louis XIV 4 sols from the 1670s Lyon mint. Any help appreciated with more information on either coin. I will try and clean up the 4 sols better but it is very brittle and thin at .9 grams. Two 17th century silvers in one night and neither are Spanish. A day I wont soon forget

    Two great finds for sure. Too bad they're not in better shape but at least you saved them from the ground. I believe you are spot on for the Louis XIV coin. I only see the one side so I assume the other side may be worn away? Hopefully you are able to clean it up a little bit. They were minted 1674-1679. Unfortunately the hole is right where the last two digits should be. Bummer .

    My My My… I was just thinking how you don't see cut tree shillings that often, and then you go and post a 4 Sols.
    Both of those finds are super nice. Both are bucket listers for me, but I live in the wrong area to ever dig a Massachusetts silver.
    I dig my cobs on the early French sites in my area, but I have never dug an early French silver.
    Super nice finds bud. Cant wait to see what you find next.

    I was with my brother in law when he dug a beautiful holed 4 sols from 1675. I've never found one personally. Only French silver I have is a cut silver 6 or 12 sols from the Windward Islands. You have a really incredible site on your hands. I might have 3 or 4 sites like that in total. And thats over 28 years of detecting. They dont come around often.

    Thanks. Definately in my top three favorite finds. I wonder how often cut Massachusetts silver is found compared to whole coins. I would love to know why this one was cut down so small. It rang up in the pull tab range too
