    A guy on here found one the other day from 1916 in MA and is the same coin but oddly his head bust is facing left where yours is facing right. It cleaned up really well too. Congratulations on an outstanding find.

    Thanks guys, this is probably one of my many favorite finds. Probably because I would never suspect coming across an older large cent from England. And also the soldier dude holding the Union Jack shield and triton is pretty darn sweet. Just a cool looking coin I thought. Thanks again and good luck to you all.

    I thought that very same thing but didn't include it in my description because I figured it would make me sound really stupid So I guess that makes us both blind! Hehe!
