Found another little hotspot on a hilltop in one of my new farmfields. Keepers were a few buttons, half real and then the braided hair LC close by. A little further away I got a deep scratchy tone and out popped my first milled 2 Reales:headbang: Both silvers are well worn so its safe to say the site dates to 1840-50s

Congrats on the nice coins and on finding such a great spot. Those 2-reales are good sized coins. Best wishes for continued good luck.

Hope so. Its one of those rare mystery sites that gives up a lot of nice coins but hardly any other period artifacts. Hard to say what went on there

Got to love the little hot spots when out exploring a permission.
Congrats on the silvers, that's a great result any day in my books.
