Silver Spanish 2 Reale in Found in Pennsylvania, USA

Was just hunting my side yard here in south-western PA and my E-TRAC rang up a solid 12-46 and I dug up this coin that looks like a Spanish Reale. It weighs 6.2 grams and is about 1.3mm think. No seam around the edges. Don't know who scratched the cross in the kings face (guessing that's king somebody), wasn't me. My previous oldest coin was 1945, if real this one blows the 1945 away. Thanks Minelab!
