    (**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!

    If there's anything I hate worse than diggin' pulltabs, its missin' a gold ring.
