A buddy of mine who does great research we have teamed up together and we found a spot that has Belgian Blocks In a row just like this Lots of big granite stones and then between the cracks in with a Pinpointer I found these I was only there for 10 minutes and I had to leave. Research believes that that was a place where they would bring their boats from New Orleans and they would throw the granite stones off the boat so they could load it with Whatever they’re picking up. The silver coin is not silver it’s so weird I know it’s from India because I can see the letters on it I don’t know why it’s so graffitied and it looks like half of it has a rated edge and half of it doesn’t. I’m gonna be thinking about this all night

Research believes that that was a place where they would bring their boats from New Orleans and they would throw the granite stones off the boat so they could load it with whatever they’re picking up from the lake.. The silver coin is in silver but I do see letters spelling India. All man I didn’t wanna leave but I had to I can’t wait to go back. YES!!!!!!!
Hey Truth, nice going on your new spot...Looks promising. Your coin is a 5 Rupees from India from 1992 and up. Here are some co pages with a pic of your coin, rotated properly. View attachment 2027858 View attachment 2027859 View attachment 2027860 View attachment 2027861
Villa’s not you are amazing but now how do you explain and 1840 India coin and then a 1992 India coin. I can’t believe my eyes but it’s right there. This is a definite head scratcher it’s gonna blow my mind that it’s sinking in

your other older coin is not from india...it is an east indies company 1 cent coin....from either sumatra or Indonesia. not a real valuable coin but ultra cool.
Villagenut, I was thinking the same thing.. a token from the East Indian Trading company.. they literally trained the British Navy and they basically owned the planet for a period of time. And Truth... Congrats! Pretty cool finds..
