Default Never Realely Hunted Out

I know the title is cheesy but I was at a site today after work that Iíve pounded and have considered close to hunted out since Iíve only squeaked out a coin or two the last three or four times there wasnít expecting much hoping for an IH. Then I got a 1241 solid hit on the CTX at 5Ē and when I opened the hole and saw a large silver edge standing straight up I was shocked I pulled it out not thinking reale but when I turned it over to see the date 1790 I knew I was done for the night because I was so fired up I couldnít focus and knowing the size it had to be a 2 reale a first for me and only my second reale ever. I still canít believe it. A bucketlister checked off. Thanks for looking and happy hunting.

Super sweet neighbor. Nothing like spanish silver. If you can, throw a pic of the back up so I can get a full drool on. Big congrats.
