    1779 1/2 Reale

    A balmy day in NY today so I had to go detectin.I hooked up with my buddy Dan and his boy Danil and we hit a cornfield were we have had really good luck finding Indian artifacts as well as colonial relics and coins. The finds are getting few and far between but we allways find something interesting and have a good time.Young Danil and I both spotted an arrowhead at the same time today,but youth and the little guy beat me to it ! I love huntin with young Danil I ask him every few seconds "ya find any gold yet Ya find any gold yet" and he says "nope" Onea these days he's gunna say "Yep" We found some bullets & flat buttons then not long before we had to go I dug my 2'nd 1/2 reale from this site.1779 Have a good one all !
