Detecting Silver & Copper Coins of King Charles XI of Sweden

Finding a silver coin certainly boosted my morale, but now I knew that the ratio "# of Dug Copper Coins : 1 Dug Silver Coin" was not in my favor, so I mentally mobilized myself to dig up more common coppers. And they were readily available!

...I know it would sound silly if I would say, "I want to find the way of having my thought of finding a silver coin make it all the way into reality." However, the more I analyzed the process of materializing what I desire and imagine (not to be confused with imagining a brand new car and then it would instantly appear in front of you), the more interesting conclusions I came to.

One, for example, is that there must be a method of materialization of thought, which probably was similar to dowsing. Everybody knows why the L-rods move, but still there is no explanation to what causes the human muscles to contract when a specific question is placed in mind. This is still beyond modern science and will be that way until an adequate instrument for registering and measuring some sort of bio-electromagnetic signals or quanta of energy of unknown type is invented.

So, for now, everything comes to intuition. Many times I would find a nice silver coin right after...
Suddenly I received a signal! I had been waiting for it! I knew it was not a bullet, but sounded a little strange. When I saw the coin, I knew why it did not give out a "curvilinear" signal.

Discovering A Silver Coin Fragment

A monogram CXI on obverse placed the coin in the same time period - the reign of the king Charles XI (Karl XI), as of my previous silver find. I wondered if I could determine the exact date of this coin fragment.

Unfortunately the coin date was not present on this "half" of the coin. But at least I could determine that it was an original Swedish 1 Öre minted in Stockholm between 1681 and 1685.
