Default First Spanish silver for me

Well all I can say is that the metal detecting gods were on my side last night. Turned my at max on and five steps later I was beeping a solid 78 at four inches, and out popped this oldie. Iím still pumped. Thanks for looking HH

Amazing Find !! Congrats on the Spanish silver. I would definitely do a happy dance if I found something like that but not much chance of it around here.

Awesome find! I see 1738 on there. Amazing. I would think that it would have hit higher than 78!

Brilliant find right there!
If I heard a solid 78, I would of course dig it, but it would be a Zincoln or an injun??
