Thread: Cartwheel Penny in the United States?

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »

    The penny is a common find here, I personally have never found a two pence. All have the date 17697, but it appears that coins were minted for several years, just all bearing the date 1797. Always a nice find even here.

    Never heard of it. Of course being near the Mississippi River I might not expect to see many old English coins out my way so I haven't researched them much. Glad to see you getting acquainted with posting finds. You are one of my favorite YT metal chasers. Catch ya' on the rebound with some more cool stuff I am sure.

    I was going to do the same, but you posted your link first. Great history behind this coin.

    I've dug two One Penny Cartwheels one being in a tree'd area of a park in Toronto, and the other one on an Island off of Gananoque Ont. The interesting thing is I've made 8 trips to England and never have dug one there. Been with a group of 6 others over the years only one, maybe two might be found over a two week period. Not a high numbered coin on either side of the pond.

    Nice save. I've never found one but was with a friend when he found one locally a couple years ago. I did find an early Victorian large cent awhile back.

    Living for the hunt!
    Been avoiding this thread because....
    1. It says United States.
    2. Given the numbers members have found, no one would believe me.
    3. People will want proof and I'm not going to pull them out of my binder and block out the site information on each coin holder.
    I will say that the people of the U.K. hated these coins due to their bulk and sent them here as we had no currency outside of furs and trade goods.
    My friends have witnessed my lack of emotions when I find another. Almost all my George III coins are 1797, 1799, 1806, and 1807.
    I get excited when I find one earlier than the dates mentioned.
    A metal detector can only do so much..........
    It's up to you to do the rest!
