I drove to NOLA and the parks were filled with people nobodyโ€™s worring about the virus apparently, so I drive along the bayou and came across a grassy field that Iโ€™ve driven pass a thousand times but it was just cut so I stopped. I was surprised to see a lot of iron square nails, white shells and brick in the clay. It was hard digging but what the hell. My first find was a brass thing I thought interesting then 1897 V nickel very interesting I was freaking out. Then I found a 1926 buffalo. So I came across more iron square nails which were falsing in the low 20โ€™s. Then I hit a spot where it was falsing all over the place but this one had some 30โ€™s mixed in there. Thank God I dig everything. After pulling out about eight square nails I saw what looked like a Mardi Gras doubloon and then i picked it up and looked and fell on my back laughing like a school girl. Here it is in all itโ€™s glory a 1809 8 reales in flawless condition. Unbelievable day to break my 3 month curse. Thank you for sharing in my glory.

Yes, you have to dig those marginal targets, especially in a lot of trash. Nice coin. Very nice coin.

Well Done Truth on the 1809 Reale. All nice finds, but the Reale rocks. In beautiful condition too, especially to be so old.
