  • Silver coin

    While walking the very muddy corn field today here in south eastern Ohio I came this Spanish from 1800! Now to try and find out how it got there!

      Thats a great find. Left by those Ohio pirates. Found a few silver coins while hunting but nothing that nice.

        Very cool find. Spanish Colonial 1 Real of Carlos IV, minted in Mexico City.
        I keep six honest serving-men (they taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who.

          Spanish silver was used as currency in the US before we made our own coins and even after...

        After that last rain.... muddy for sure. Incredible find !! I think it's the leprechauns and wood sprites leaving stuff just to mess with our heads.

          Foreign coinage was used in the U.S. until a law was passed in 1858 I believe. The spanish reale was the coin of choice most often. Awesome find!
