    HOLY COW ,,,,,......Reign Title: Yung Lo (1408-1424 a.d.)

    However, we must take into account that in Japan during the period 1587-1617
    were cast coins with the same legend
    Now I'm stoked

    Jeff
    Do not follow where the path may lead, but go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail

    the tides come in for 6 hours and go out for 6 hours day in and day out
    here is an example
    today high tide 9.4 thats 9 foot 4
    low tide -1.7 minus one foot seven inches.
    works like that
    the tides change according to the moons pull on the ocean.

    minus tides dont happen a lot but they happen. several times a year
    normal is like
    LOW TIDE 3:34 pm 2.7 <----this would be a normal tide
    today minus -1.7

    Rick,
    Congratulations on such a terrific find. Not very often that the Pacific NW will give up something that old. Being as where you found it I would say that this find should be banner material. It sure beats rusty nails and canslaw.... Highwater
    In every lifetime, there must be an adventure. A quest to far off lands, an encounter with danger, the chance to explore the unknown. The search for treasure is one such adventure.

    That sure is some coin you found! Wow, did it come out looking like that or was it all covered in crude? If you cleaned it what did you clean it with?

    I just lightly rubbed it clean with some baking soda and water
    the coin came out of the muck looking close to that i thought it was a washer till i saw the writing on it.
    i was hoping it was an old one like from 1850 to 1900 but to my supprise it was much older
    if it was made in 1424 at the latest it would be
    584 years old today
    I wish i could know the story of the travels behind that coin.

    Kinda makes you wonder who else was on our shores before 1492, when Columbus landed in Haiti.

    I checked up on the theory, and it does exist: "Starry Night Charts Support Theory That Chinese Beat Columbus to America

    Hey there fishing nut, I am taking History in College this semester and we were taking about the Chinese actually came to America on the East coast before Christopher Columbus came in 1492.

    To be truthful they are now talking about Indains crossed a land bridge to Alaska when Russia and Alaska once here togather around 20,000 years ago. Let's all go to Alaska and see if we can find some 20,000 yr old relics.
