Default TWO mega Bucket lister silvers, and a few seated friends

So it has been some time since I have found much worth posting. Heck I haven't made it out to detect even half as much as I would like to. A friend was in town so me and my buddy took him out detecting. Turns out I was a terrible host and found everything I feel bad he didn't find any silver coins tho he did however find a silver dime with the center cut out, maybe an attempt at a ring? Ill try to get pics

We started out at my seated silver spot. I found a couple torched indians, and a few relics. Then I found a very weird nickel signal that just randomly jump to a high tone, thinking it was probably one of those old square nails i was surprised to find a v-nickel in the hole. Rescanning the hole turned up these two seated dimes! The other odd relic was the medical bottle with the rubber stopper with a place for a needle to insert. Since it was a horse track my imagination wanders to things like crooked horse racing and people either tranquilizing the competition or giving the horse something to hop it up. Yet it looks maybe too modern for the era, so maybe it is just my imagination running wild.

The next day we went out to some old cellar holes. First stop I hop out of the truck and the very first signal I swung over was this 1778 2 reales! My first spanish silver ever. Couldn't have been happier and didn't care if I found anything the rest of the day. The interesting part is that a coin that old was in this area. It must have been dropped by very early settlers, as most towns around here were established mid/early 1800s. I imagine very few of these ever circulated here. We wrapped it up at that cellar and went to hit another not far away. There is where I found the second rare bucket lister. Just up next to the lip of the cellar near what I think was the doorway, a 1831 capped bust half dime popped out!!! feels good to hit that sweet silver again after a long cold winter!

Wow! I would say “good hunt” but that would be an understatement. You killed it! Amazing finds!

Excellent finds! Spanish silver is awesome! What is that key-like object? I found one the other day, I was thinking maybe a clock winder?

Awesome! I have been researching race tracks in my area... Hopefully, I will find one that isn't covered by residential development.
