    My new BEST coin ever!

    Hello friends,
    I just returned from 9 days detecting in Germany and got an amazing coin on the last morning! It is a 15 Kreuzer dated 1662 and features the bust of Leopold I. He was also known as "hog mouth" because of his severe facial deformity. The coin is the same size as a half dollar and was a total shock when it popped out of the ground! It is the largest silver coin I have dug in Germany. I am so excited to have this coin! The obverse reads: LEOPOLDVSDGRIS (XV) AGHBREX (Leopoldus Dei Gratia Romanorum Imperator Semper Augustus Germaniae Hungariae Bohemiae Rex)

    The reverse reads: ARCHIDAVSDVXBVCOTYR 1662 (Archidux Austriae Dux Burgundiae Comes Tyrolis).
