    First Spanish Silver and King George Copper of the year + more!

    I got out Saturday and Sunday this weekend and made some nice recoveries. First a solo hunt on Saturday where I scored my first Spanish silver of the year thus keeping my nine year streak of finding at least one Spanish silver intact. This one a 1772 half real, Mexico City mint. I also got a 1902 IHP and a couple buttons.

    Sunday a buddy and I made a short drive down to Maryland to follow up on some research we collaborated on. On the way down I told him this is either gonna be a payday or a bust. I ended up with 11 buttons, and pretty decent 1740s King George II copper, a 1955 Belgian 20 centimes, a knob to a cabinet or drawer, and a mystery heavy round brass piece with a threaded hole.

    Here's the coins and buttons from the weekend

    I want to say 1743 for the KGii but that’s maybe just my eyes playing tricks. Great year reale - I like to envision that being carried around by a rev war soldier. Way to go Steve!

    1772 is the first year of the portrait style Spanish silver and could easily have been handled by a Rev War soldier while it was in circulation.
