    Roll Call of the Early Copper Coins Found in Kentucky

    After finding a KG II copper the other day and a Virginia half penny a couple years ago I was wondering about other early copper coins found in Kentucky over the years (pre 1800). Both of the coins were posted on today's finds and can be found in my started thread. I know Nova posted a KG and two magnificent New Jersey state copper awhile back along with his brother finding a Nova Constellatio coin. A veteran relic hunter that lives near me also found a Nova Constellatio near his home. I remember reading online about the archaeological survey of Daniel Boone's Station in Fayette County in which a KG copper was recovered onsite. So if others want to share their findings or weigh in I would love to hear what was brought to this state by the early pioneers. Thank you!

    Interesting thread and glad to see it, hopefully others will chime in over time. I haven't found anymore pre 1800 coppers since the 3 of mine that you posted, but I have found several pre 1800 reales and cut silver in different sites since than and before. Good Luck in 2018 and hopefully we all get the chance to add another early copper to this thread.

    Nova I was hoping you would comment on this thread. I hope others can contribute as well. The only connections I have are a few local veteran hunters, so I'm not aware of scope of finds throughout Kentucky. I know reales are more common than pre 1800 coppers. I too have some half and one reales, a two, two cut, and a few counterfeit reales. I failed to mention the 1798 large cent that I recovered about two years ago. The early coppers are hard to come by in Kentucky.
