    I couldn’t fathom finding one, and now I probably never will, since you and Buddy found them all!

    Definitely a BANNER worthy find!
    Some in-situ pics and a background history of the site would also be nice too.

    I'm a big fan of Spanish silver and that is a really special find. The fact that all of them were cut pieces and none were complete coins shows just how common cut silver coins were in south east VA. This is Banner and my vote is going in now.

    That’s the only area I’ve (personally) found cut silver. In the Northeast I’ve only gotten whole Spanish silvers. Absolutely incredible!!!
