First and foremost I like to thank louisianaman for the invite to a permission it was old ground from 1723 next to the Mississippi River. The problem was we only had a hour and it was a hour away but the humidity was low so off we went then to the Fort. Now we get there and we knew we had to read the ground fast got a whole piece of black glass piece of lead then I hit a jar lid with the ceramic inside and then I got the same signal at 2 inches down and I dug it BAM! 1805 Carolus IIII 8 Reales so lucky Beautiful details minor wear this makes my 3rd 8 Reales in the 6 years I?ve been detecting [emoji256] [emoji1317][emoji256] IMG_3292.jpg

Big congrats Truth.

Super looking silver and a special thanks for including the image of the edge. Interesting what they did to coins to stop people from shaving the edges and "scalping" some silver. We don't get to see them looking that good very often.

Hey Pete I appreciate that after I found it and I handed it over to my partner the first question I asked him is how does the rim look? And she?s a beauty check out my other one I found In my achievements. It?s a incredible coin all three of mine have been in almost mint condition for coming out of the ground as far as I?m concerned. I?m so lucky
