Dug this beauty in a cornfield today. It gave off a nice faint high tone on the AT Pro. It is a Mexico City mint, and is holed. This is my first 2-Reale and only my second Spanish silver. Found a couple buttons too. Thanks for checking out my post. Happy Hunting!.

Wow, what a beautiful looking coin! :hello2: Some folks may not appreciate that it's been 'holed', but I think that makes it unique and adds to the history of it's 270+ years of use.

Hope you have a nice Thanksgiving this week,
Dave

Thanks, Dave. I got to admit, I was a little disappointed when I first saw the hole. However, it actually does make the coin a little more interesting. Happy belated Thanksgiving to you! Good luck out there. Steve
