    TWICE IN A LIFETIME FIND...8 REALE!!!!!!

    This in one of those "I was on my way back to the car" finds!! I decided to duck out of work a little early today and hit a field nearby where I had recently obtained permission. There was really nothing to lead me to believe that something was there but it looked like a good area. I had hunted for a couple hours with only a single musketball to show for it. There wasn't a lot of trash on the site so I wasn't really digging much either. I decided I was going to head back to the car and try another field which had just been cut (very early hay crop). I was on my way back to the car when I got a 92 on the F75. I swung by the hole a couple times and it stayed on a steady 92...never had a 92 before...I thought it must be a can or something...same thing I thought the last time I dug A FRIGGING 8 REALE!!!!

    I popped the plug and there it was! I knew what it was instantly! I did not have my camera with me but I did have my cell phone so I snapped a couple quick insitus with the camera phone and a quick movie on the way home in the car. I kept the caked on dirt on the coin until I got home because I didn't want to risk scratching it.

    A Mexico mint 1774 8 reale...without a huge distracting scar like the last 8 reale I dug! I was so excited on the field that I tried calling Mel, Andy and Iron Patch but I could not connect through 411 and I didn't have a pen to write down the numbers...I actually tried remembering the numbers but I couldn't concentrate...just too excited. I know I should have stayed and continued on with the field but when I am this stoked I can't concentrate on anything. Plus I want to keep it pure for a couple fellow detectorists...there are several who will be getting the invite...

    Re: TWICE IN A LIFETIME FIND...8 REALE!!!!!!

    Holy Cow! I'm totally jealous. Not one, but two 8 reales. I can't believe the shape of that one. I'm hoping just to break the 1800's and here you are with your second 8 reale. Congrats, won't be long til I see this one the banner. I'm never really looking to sell any finds, but out of curiousity what is something in that condition worth approximately?

    Not worth a whole lot, couple hundred dollars but they are considered the holy grail of finds to many...

    How deep was it? Up here, with the freeze and thaw cycles I think a coin drops a flippen 1/2" a year.
    Let me see........ 2008 minus 1772 equals 236 years times .5 = 118 inch's divided by 12 = 9.8 FEET!!!!!!!!!!

    THATS ONE GREAT DETECTOR AND ONE HECK OF A PLUG!!!!!
    Congratulation on the dig, BEAUTIFUL COIN
