    The die crack is so pronounced. All the other detail points to valentine type 2, front and back. 31-75 of this coin thought to still be in existence but very few of them this clean. As far as value, from what I could research, value starting at 5-7k. I would think that it would go higher as there is no fear of counterfeiting with this variation. The die crack is a god send in both valuation terms.

    Superb details and for being excavated, the surface isn't that bad at all.

    I think you might have mixed up the numbers on your VF's and EF's, but I agree this coin has EF details. I'm not particularly strong at grading Early American but having looked at plenty that were professionally graded, once you see past the surface, the details are probably in the EF range (and the grading houses tend to be a bit more forgiving with them than they are with later stuff). That coin wasn't circulated much before it found a peaceful and undisturbed place in the earth for 200+ years

    It does kind of give one pause when we think about how hasty we can sometimes be in digging targets. One careless jab from the Lesche here and... well... lets not even think about that.

    Way to go Neil. If I found this coin and was standing in the fields gawking at such a wonderful find I believe an old Winston Churchill saying would come to mind. "This is my Finest Hour". You deserve it buddy.

    Thanks LS Morgan. Usually I don't make mistakes like that. Must have been as excited as Neil!
