    This is truly unique; an example of one of the earliest coins found in the US. Voted Banner

    Congrats on the oldie-the other half is probably still lurking in the soils. Like you stated time to open it right up and get back there.-Best of luck of the next dig.

    Looks like a match to me. Early Spanish then! (I found it hard to see the image well, although I'm clueless on Spanish stuff)

    HCW you need to move to tidewater Maryland or Virginia to get them. Most of the early spots in Mass and the northeast are under concrete. Not so much here.

    Calabash, there is a reasonable possibility you can find Roman coins if you find out where the fill from the WWII victory ships was dumped near the harbors.
