Founds some stuff

Postby dg7080 » Fri Mar 29, 2019 8:50 pm

My neighbor plowed his dove field this week so I did a little walking the other day. Had a little luck and saved a few artifacts.. but I stumbled across this 1783 Spanish/Mexican 1 reales coin too. Someone a long time ago stuck a nail through it and must have had it as a charm or necklace. And I thought it was just a muddy dime and almost didnt pick it up... Now I need a rain!

I've read that people often poked a hole in those and kept on a necklace/string, in order not to loose them.. i imagine back then, loosing a coin like that would be easy
