So today I’m detecting on one of my colonial farm permissions. I come across this amazing 24 signal on the Equinox. Steady 24 every direction. So I dig it up and out pops this gray looking coin. Definitely had some character to it. To my surprise it was a 2 Reales Carlos IV (1788-1808). Can’t really see the date but I believe it is 18?? The gray patina is a little on the heavy side but that’s alright with me.

Enjoy!
