(**Video**) Two Bits! 17** Cut Spanish Silver!!
This was my big "non-Civil War" find of the day.
My oldest coin to date, and my oldest silver (obviously).
It is a beautiful, thick, heavy "two bits" 1/4/ cut of a Spanish 8 Reale! It was pretty new when it was cut. Lots of detail. The edging is very clear.
It gave a perfect 83-84 VDI ... I thought I was digging a Seated Quarter.
Here are the pics ...
And check out this edge ...
This is silver coin #5 for me this year. My "youngest" so far has been an 1893-O Barber Dime. I'm actually going back in time!!
Here's the video of this and my other finds. Be sure to subscribe to my future videos. Thanks for looking!

Nice super old silver quarter Shooter... Too bad they didn't leave the whole date on it when it was cut.. Awesome findIneptocracy [in-ep-toc'-ra-cy] - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. There are three classes of people: those who see...those who see when shown...and those who do not see. - Leonardo da Vinci
