    Well damn, I guess i'll join in on this. I've found several of these guys over the years.Most look like this one, and I do have one that appears to have a harp on the back. Anyways, this is the only one that I can actually see somewhat of a date on. It appears to be 1722 or 1729. Hell, all I know is I can def see 172 for sure!Click image for larger version.

    On a more serious note, it looks like it was used as jewelry (it's holed, which means it was maybe a charm or pendant), which means it was probably lost WAY after it was minted, it was turned into a charm and someone lost it. Anyways, really cool find.

    My thoughts as well coinman. But it is proof that even the very old stuff can be found just about anywhere.

    It looks to be a King George i half penny. It's not a Wood's Hibernia, for the edge is too wide making it british. It is NOT a 1729 half penny, for that would be King George II, and this coin is King George I. Your coin has to be from 1720-1724, considering they did not mint King George I halfpennies in after 1724, and yours is clearly 1720's. To me, it looks like the date is 1722.

    Here is my Wood's Hibernia 1723 King George I Irish Halfpenny. Those are not two coins, it's one coin with it's front and back composed into one photo.

    My stuff is rather "new" compared to the other finds on here.

    1887 Morgan dollar
    1901 V Nickel
    1905 Indian Head Cent
    1906 Indian Head Cent

    All of the above were found during sidewalk tear-outs or after an old house was demolished. Most of the other areas have been picked pretty clean, or so it seems.

    I found a 1802 Spanish 1/2 realle on the southern banks of the Mississippi River about 4 inches down.
    Buddy dug a 1856 Canadian coin an hour later 20 yards away.
    With 5 of us hunting, only a wheatie was dug after in a 3 hour hunt.

    Wow, a Morgan dollar is on the top of my "Want To Find" list, I hope to be able to cross it off at some point.

    Metal Detecting
    Today was a whopper for me!

    A little back story, in the last 3 weeks I have knocked 3 coins off my bucket list. in Order, 2 Saturdays ago I found an 1828 Large cent, not in bad shape but not the best ever. last Saturday I found my first Barber (1909) dime and today...I found a 1796 Spanish Reale! Its a 1R with a few other goofy marks on it. I have also found a chines coin with a squire notch in the middle, from my research it appeared to be really old but I need to snap a picture and post so you guys can let me know.

    Congrats on getting all those coins in only 3 weeks! I think that this website might help you identify your Chinese coin down to a specific range of years.coins of china, the Ch'ing Dynasty of titles
