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

Truth, you put up with the heat and hurricanes down there but you sure got your reward. Those are all beauties. Plus, you know there are more around there somewhere. Congrats! Gary

I?ll tell you Gary it opened my eyes that if I can find three 8 Reales I k ow for a fact there?s a gold coin out there waiting to be rescued. Thank again Gary for the kind words and yes the weather down here we?re more pissed about the heat after loosing electricity than the actual hurricane. Lol

Excellent looking Spanish silver Truth. I would gladly trade one of my Morgan digs for that coin.

Trezurehunter I never found a Morgan and if I get blessed with a Morgan I?d be extra happy getting a -O- mint that?s my bodies bucket list. How happy why are you picking up that heavy piece of silver American treasure? Crazy huh
