Default 1756 Spanish 2 Reales

Just found this today in my backyard only 1-2 inches deep! As this is my first 'significant' find, I definitely wont be selling, but always curious as to what these would go for. I tried doing some basic research on ebay etc, but most I see are in very poor condition Any ideas what this would go for?

LCS or the infamous auction site we all love to hate for recent sales of similar coins...after all its only worth what someone is willing to pay, right?

I wish I had a backyard full of treasure like that. The only treasure my yard yields is bottle caps and pull tabs- with the occasional rusty nail of course.
