    Then it sure sounds like it is an early coin. If no modern finds were there you'd have to be the most unlucky person on the forum to have found junk on an old site. It can happen, but pretty uncommon.

    Re: Holy Cow....I am still shakin'....what did I find?

    Im not sure I can find the exact match but the possibility exists that its just a poor quality modern replica. But I would rather find a spanish reale replica than a zincoln any day. If it turns out to be modern, you dont want to hang it around your neck.

    Here is a link with modern zinc replicas. http://www.deadmentellnotales.com/cg...&keywords=XTCR
    The first pic is an 8 reale but the second pic is a 2 reale. The 2R pic is small and not very clear on detail so its hard to tell. The only way to be sure is to purchase one and hold the 2 side by side. I think it resembles the second pic.

    Im hoping that its a period counterfeit. But if its zinc based pot metal, it would be modern.

    Notice the cross is off centered the same in relation to the shape which is also the same.

    I dont have a better pic but I suggest to purchase one for .75. This is your coin IMO.

    Modern pot metal replica, sorry.

    I find them on Treasure beach lol. I think people toss them for us to find. And tourists buy them and lose them.

    Youre welcome. I am amazed at the amount of replicas, copies, fakes and fantasy cobs on the market. I think I was lucky to find a match. This particular one is a mass produced zinc replica (most likely) but fakes coming out of Central America are silver, made individually and much harder to spot. They are being sold on eBay and to tourists. There are so many coming on the market that I have stopped trying to document them. It seems to be becoming a losing battle.
