    That is awesome! Congrats and sounds like it's well earned. Can't wait to hear the whole story once you can tell it.

    It's OK to be disappointed AFTER you dug it - as long as you never forget; that BEFORE you dug it, it had the POTENTIAL to be life changing!

    ...something to consider...that is not a new world mint mark, the coin comes from the Seville mint in Spain.

    Thanks! I had not noticed that, nor would I have done as coins are not my "thing"!!
    What mark do you refer to and being minted there, does that have any significance? is it good or bad news!!??

    Thanks again!

    on the reverse side down at the bottom you have the sheep, that is the "order of the golden fleece", to the left of that is an odd looking "s". The S is the mint mark for Seville, which means the coin was minted in Spain. During that period of time, Spain was producing huge amounts of gold and silver from all over the new world and had several mints in South and Central America. Now I do not know what you are pursuing here with your find and the potential of your site, but for instance, a New World treasure ship should not have such a coin.

    Thanks!!

    So that would indicate that it came FROM Spain to where I found it, as opposed to being minted in the region I found it? Would it be unusual for this to happen? Would they bring currency from Spain to buy / trade etc? or just perhaps be in the possession of the crew?


    I wonder how this affects my Wreck theory?

    I understand where you are going with this and if true, there would likely not be much in the form of treasure on the ship. However, the ship could quite possibly be a treasure laden ship but the coin that BVI Hunter found may have actually been the property of the Captain, one of the crew or a passenger. If BVI Hunter has found any information as to the identity of the ship, that will likely tell whether it was laden with treasure or not!
