These 4 silver coins are special to me because of condition and were all found on public property in different locations This was my first 8 Reales in a sidewalk strip in my first 6 months of detecting IMG_1627.jpg

This is my other 8 Reales that was found across a bayou 60 yards from a Fort and I also found a early 18th century French cannonball and absolutely nothing else IMG_0501.jpg
IMG_0246.jpg
This is my best 1 Reales from the Fort itself IMG_1555.jpg

By far my best looking half real found at a local small park near my house IMG_0187.jpg
IMG_0186.jpg Thank you for looking I?ll look forward to seeing your four favorite coins you?ve found.

Nice coins Truth. Picking four favs is not an easy thing to do for me.
But here are my four as it stands today. Ask me again tomorrow and they might be different :laughing7:

This G. Washington portrait cufflink is my most valuable find and top favorite for obvious reasons.

This patriotic Rattlesnake & Stars button is on the list because I had wanted to dig one for years, and I now wear a tattoo of it on my arm.

This 1661 hammered silver King Leopold is on the list because it is my oldest coin. I found the 1708 Spanish silver the same day on the same site.

My fourth and final find is this Civil War era militia belt plate because I had to work really hard to get it out of the ground and I think it's pretty cool.

3. type V shoe buckle 1660-1720 ?

I don't find a whole lot of old coins . What large cents do find is toast. That's why I have two relics has favorites.
