Pink Glass & Old Coins

Found these beauties this morning. I'm not sure if I was more excited about the pink glass or the 1899 penny I found two feet from the glass!

A Penny for your thoughts!

I have found a piece of eight on a Bermuda beach and I can tell you it surpasses every awesome piece of seaglass that I have ever found and it's a lot!....That penny is awesome!!

Added info:

The real de a ocho, also known as the Spanish dollar, the eight-real coin, or the piece of eight (Spanish peso de ocho), is a silver coin, of approximately 38 mm diameter, worth eight reales, that was minted in the Spanish Empire after 1598.

The Spanish dollar was widely used by many countries as the first international currency because of its uniformity in standard and milling characteristics.

The Spanish dollar was the coin upon which the original United States dollar was based, and it remained legal tender in the United States until the Coinage Act of 1857.
