    221 Year Old Coin Found in Bag of Halves

    Imagine going though my normal pile of halves and having this 1787 Coin come rolling out. I have included a link to similar coins. The condition of this coin is not great(I wouldn't look great after 221 years either). Thanks for looking. Jim

    I def did not expect OLD US COPPER to be the coin found!

    GRATS!

    That is surely an intense find... I can't begin to imagine how that got there.

    probably someone thought they'd pull a fast one on the bank and stuff a dumb looking piece of copper in a roll of clad. hahahahhahahahahhahaha, there's just nothing like the educational system lately.
