    1786 CT Copper

    Found this coin approx. 8" in dry sand at a near-by beach a couple of weeks ago.

    Earliest dated coin I have ever found.

    Thanks for looking

    Well, welcome back then and kudos on getting your oldest dated coin (40 plus varieties for the year 1786 and over 240+ varieities if that last digit 6 happens to be a 7, after blowing up the photos, I am not sure now.)

    Welcome Lorraine

    If I could find a coin in that date age It would surely make my day. Earliest coin for me so far has been an 1858 Cdn Penny.

    Copy or no it's still a nice find that would get my heart thumping!


    Congrats Lorraine!

    Re: 1786 CT Copper

    Thank you, Don; I'm quite sure the last digit is a "6".

    I am not sure of the variety, but am attaching a link to a photo of what my coin find resembles.

    By golly you are correct, if there is a liberty cap on the top of the shaft, (looks like there is to me in the photo, but sure you can see better in person),that would be diagnostic for the O.1 reverse and the Obverse sure looks good enough match from what I see, so I think logging your coin as a 1786 M.05-O.1 would be correct.
