    First Spanish Silver of the year - 1751

    I got out over the weekend and nailed my 72nd Spanish Silver, a well worn 1751 pillar style half real.

I also got a few buttons and a Matron Head Large Cent that looks like it went through a nuclear holocaust. Both coins have seen better days, but I'll take 'em

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
