Absolutely believable! If anyone was going to do it I'd put my $ on you. You must have put a motion sensor on that stretch of the waterfront so you wouldn't miss the opportunity once they started tearing it up.
Does that group shot have 5 Spanish silver and one marevedi?
And thank you Shaggy Cannon for letting Bart in on the spill location so we could see them. :occasion14:

ps. That image of you kneeling in front of the machine, makes you look like you could play Lieutenant Bart in a remake of Forrest Gump.

Well some have a horse shoe jammed up the old arse it seems when it comes to having luck.
But I get the feeling that you have the the whole frigging horse up there.
Hence the question if it hurt.:laughing7:
Have a great sleep Bart, you've had a wonderful day and have made a memory that will last you for many moons.
Congratulations once again.:hello2:

What can I say that hasn’t already been said here Bart! :occasion14:
Except, congratulations on your finds and for making the effort to detect a site that most folks wouldn’t even have considered detecting in the middle of a construction site.

I forgot to ask if there are dates or mints visible on the Cobb's?

Im not sure yet....the little 4 reale didn't look like it would but it did so theres hope for the others that there's a date hiding under the sulfide crust !!!
