    Mystery Silver Coin UPDATE: No longer a mystery, It's a Half Real

    This was dug at an 1800's cellarhole site where i recently found an 1883 Indian Head. It is a little smaller than a dime and is very thin. It has very few distinguishing features as you can see but after studying it for hours and going through my redbook several times I've decided to let the experts have a look at it Thanks for looking! Ugly coat buttons eh?

    Nice digs Jerry! I'd have to with the popular consensus on the silver...
    "The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere"

    Re: Mystery Silver Coin

    Thanks for the pics Relicdude. I think that your 1761 coin at the bottom is real close to a match. I've taken another picture and I'm able to see a little more detail now that i have it oriented the right way. I can now see the "m" with the "o" over top of it and the "u" in QUE at the top. You have a pic of the reverse of that 1761?
