1773 Spanish Half Real and "Imperial Orange Gilted" Flatbutton info?

#1 Unread post by Cwilson361981 »

I found this flatbutton yesterday in an old farm field in southern Maine...any info on these would be greatly appreciated! It's in fantastic condition btw.

Also found this 1773 silver Spanish Half Reale....I think it was minted in Mexico City. Found that at a 200 year old fairgrounds and racetrack 6" down also in Maine.

Pics attached.
