Found a 1779 silver 2 real Carolus III, different variety from the last two i found.
this one features the head on the front, F.F. assayer - Mexico City .
forth coin down on this page. last two found where the top coin on the same page.

also pulled up a second one of those odd bronze charms, this one unbroken and complete. talking to a few others, from what we can tell its a variation to the Figa, Higa or mano fico . which is the clenched fist, a symbol of good fortune and used to keep the evil eye away. we are still un able to figure out why it also has the 5 pennyweight apothecary symbol on it as well, and what connection the apothecary has to the charms, as the pennyweight also features a symbol of the clenched fist stamped into it. but there are now two of them whatever they are ....

a very tiny boot spur, looks to be for a child or someone very tiny.
what appears to be another small sword or knife pommel.

Less noise to the sides of the coil as well with higher sensitivities. And better pinpointing. Let us know how it works!

thank you Ed, there was so many choices, i watched a ton of videos and
decided on the 8x6 SEF.
how do you feel the 5` FBS concentric would do, does the SEF use the full
abilities of the FBS on the Minelab.
and does it matter, am i loosing anything not using the FBS coil ..
thanks for any input ....
