Hey All!
I haven't found anything in a while but the last weekend I went on a road trip and I found a couple of interesting coins that I wanted to share.
I believe I found a British shilling from 1758 and a Dutch 1/4 Gulden from 1759. The funny thing was that I found these coins together, so I think someone must have buried them intentionally. Does anybody know if they are very rare or are they quite common coins to find?

Nice old silver. You don't see either of those dug very often in the US compared to Spanish silver. What kind of site were you hunting and what else did you find?

A shilling like the one you found is an incredibly unusual find for the states, especially since Britain banned any silver currency from entering the colonies during that entire century. Wow!

Great saves. Could be a coin spill too. These types of coins are uncommon on this side of the pond.
