Yesterday was a hunt to remember! Things started off with a bang ( a golden one), and only got better from there. I was off in a section of woods where I recently found a Barber and Seated quarter. My first signal of the day turned out to be a big, beautiful gold class ring...Texas A & M- 1986. The ring has an inscription, so hopefully I can locate the owner.

The rest of the hunt was a bit of a blur. I came across a spill of Draped Bust LC's, and what I think is a 2 Maravedis Fernando VII ( 1812-1817). It's quite small ( 3.4 g, 22 mm) and you can barely see a bust on the obverse.

The highlight of the trip was a 1731- s King Phillip V one real. This was also part of a pocket spill that contained a 1723 Woods Hibernia half cent

This was my best hunt of the year in terms of quantity of colonial era coins. It certainly will be hard to top! Good luck to all, and HH!

Serious day of "Oh Ya" many times over.
I swear some days it doesn't matter one is just with the soils, a left or a right it's there.
Well done!

Holy bleep! What an awesome hunt you had. That Spanish silver is great, and that Woods piece held up real well. I don’t recall seeing a Draped Bust spill before. Good luck with the ring return. What a honey hole you are working… Congrats and continued good luck!

Being the proud owner of one of them thar Aggie rings, I can tell the viewers at home it ,for sure, is a HUNK of gold, in case the pics don't do it justice. (Mine, in 14K, weighs in at 35.41 grams!)
Also, the person who lost it would probably REALLY love to have it back. You will make not only their day, but quite possibly their year!
Congrats on the fantastic finds!
