    Finally joined the Spanish Club today.

    At a new spot today. Finds are vary sparce, lots of walking up and down the field swinging. But when I find my first Spanish...a 1721 Phillip V cut 2 reales (Cuena mint in Segovia) it makes all that walking worth it!! Extremely brittle.

    Super pumped. Found a 43' Walker in the same field. Was told it had been hit many times before. Guess they missed these. 12-40 high tone on the Etrac. Have an on site pic and couple cleaned up pics.

    Going to have to keep swinging out there.

    Happy hunting!

    Welcome to the club buddy! I love seeing Spanish come out of the dirt. Donít feel bad about the break. Some of those coins are pretty brittle. I found a 2 Spanish spill one time and the coins were packed into this concrete like dirt with small rocks. I broke the 1 real right in half trying to retrieve it. If one of us does it to a draped silver then we can feel really bad lol.

    Nice job on your first Spanish silver. It's a dig you wont soon forget. I found my first one 12 years ago, and I can remember the details of the hunt like it was yesterday. (And my memory isn't the best anymore) !
