    Oldest Coin, Oldest Silver Found Today-UPDATE- Site Totals

    - I was thinking about the site all night, and had to go back this morning. I took fellow t-netter Lostlake over to it. He found a silver quarter-1957. I scored some more wheats. This brought the total to 5 silver quarters found on the site. I am considering this yard "explored" and will not be returning for quite some time. I added pics of the house(if anyone recognizes it, please don't even try to enter the property. It has been searched, and the owners have given me exclusive permission). I pictured all the nice coins I found together. I find it very odd that I found a 1902 Barber Quarter and an 1802 Reale. The Indian is 1903. The tootsie toy is a 1939 Mercedes, and the shoe is a very cool old ashtray. The Met Hotel tag was made by the John Robbins Boston company that went out of business in 1885. The large piece I posted under "what is it" and got some interesting answers. Thanks again for sharing in my excitement of my Reale find. Original post below.


    Not an April's Fool joke. I dug this coin today in the same yard I dug 3 silver quarters from last week. Next time I go over I will bring a camera to picture the house. It is about 1840. When I saw this coin in the mud, I thought it was a silver dime. Then I realized the size was off. It is closer to nickel in diameter, but thinner. When I flipped it over, I knew I had struck Spanish Silver in Cincinnati, Ohio!!!!! 1802, and I am pretty sure it is a 1 Reale. I would be interested in mintage/value/condition data if anyone wants to chime in. I really don't care about value, b/c mine is priceless. It is interesting to know.....
    The true treasure hunter in me came out after finding the coin. There was another signal right next to the spot I dug the coin. It was lower on the spectrum, but at the same depth(coin was only about 4", but on a hill). Now I will have a few days to think about whether it is a gold coin, b/c I left immediately after finding this coin.
    Regards,

    Re: Oldest Coin, Oldest Silver Found Today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That is an amazingly beautiful Reale. It looks like a 1 Reale to me. I haven't seen a whole lot of early 1800s Reales so that is a treat. Most of the ones I see are from the 16 and 1700s. That coin IS priceless

    TreasureDiver, Jon's coin is a 1 Real, not an 8 Reale.

    Very nice Real, Jon. It's in great shape!! Amazing what you can dig up in Ohio, huh?

    Now go back out there and dig up that low conductor...Maybe it's a gold Spanish Escudo....
