1/2 8 Reales in my yard!!

I went out this afternoon in my side yard to try my new 17" coil and adjust my Pro-swing. I was swinging and focused on the setup of the harness. I wasn't paying a lot of attention to signals when suddenly, BING!! CTX rang in 12-46 at a depth of 12". I couldn't pass up the sweet high tone. Do I believe this or not? It was my first target with a coil that I had no history with. As it turned out it was indeed ~12". When I first pulled it out, I thought 'token'. It was fairly light weight.

It wasnt until I was chased indoors by a popup thunderstorm that I cleaned it with water and a soft brush. Googling what i could read really got me stoked; 8 Reales! I don't have a way of testing the silver yet. I have found a bit online about 'fakes' but, as far as i can tell, this doesn't have the dead give aways that I was reading about.

Thanks to Andy Sabisch's Bootcamp and his well tuned programs, my finds have exploded!!

What is your take, real or fake?

There's a Red Letter find for sure . . . . . . very nice!

Touched base with CT Todd who agreed with me that it looked "right as rain".

Great to see the day on Portage helped you unleash your CTX 3030 . . . . keep posting those finds.
