Went to a site that my detecting buddy Patrick secured, after he found a a 1675 French silver 4 Sol. So when I went to the site, I had visions of silver in my head, after 3 hours of mostly nothing, a few buttons and a large cent and a lot of rain, about 20 feet from where I parked I got a nice tone, up comes a 1784 Spanish 1/2 reale. Shortly after that Patrick drives by and stops to see how I'm doing, he can smell silver. After he leaves, about five minutes, another silver tone, heart was racing, it turned out to be a 1920 Canadian silver 5 cent piece, not Spanish or French, but nice none the less. All in all a good hunt and I can now cross Spanish silver off my list.
Ok, that's it. You're off my Xmas fruit cake list...
What a find Tony! Nicely done, I'm green with envy! I'm not sure what it cost to get that horseshoe implanted but it's paying off.
BTW, that fishscale is in really nice shape. That other old coin, meh...
That's OK, not to fond of fruit cake anyways ;-). Actually it was a long wet day, large field with a lot of walking. No horseshoe up my butt, Patrick did all the leg work, I just came along afterwards. Just purchased a couple of AF Church maps, time to do a bit more research to try and find more sites.
The fish scale is nice, just wish it was a 1921 instead.
