Colonial Spanish Reale Unearthed in North Carolina

I got this detector just about a month ago and took it out for the first time on Saturday, Feb 27. I was detecting an area that was believed to have had a lot of colonial activity. We had been to this site two times before this and found only flat buttons. I dug up this 1725 Spanish Reale, or rather change from a Spanish Reale. I have not seen any of these come from NC. My oldest find to date! I love my new E-TRAC...This is the most stable running detector I have ever used!
