Default Epic Spill

Found this spill today at a prevoiusly hunted out cellar hole. AT pro 5x8 rules and at ten plus inches down. Just goes to show never hunted out. The caped bust half is a 1831 and the 1 reales are both 1782.

Yeah I pulled the capped bust first and only saw the eagle so i thought it might be a seated but then when I saw the front I just freaked out. After I got back to the hole I just rechecked out of habit and found the friends. I am still in shock this morning.

Fantastic finds Big!

Early American silvers are pretty rare.

I'm a supporter of the 5x8 as well. In those iron infested and trashy places they separate very well. They aren't like having a hockey puck on the end of a stick. Like you mentioned, depth is still very good too.

I had trouble getting 10" with the stock coil let alone the 5x8, excellent finds! Stories like this make me miss my garrett
