    About the size of a large cent...I was thinking either also a chain cent or a Fugio.

    Try taking a rubbing. It may bring out details that are almost impossible to see.

    Found in a swamp eh..... Interesting.

    What did you do to clean it.

    is it magnetic by chance?

    You think its copper or bronze?

    That coin could be it. Something else to consider, South Carolina was settled early and of course pirates were there! Ar har! It could be a late medieval token or jetton. Mainly made of brass, they circulated well into the 18th century.

    You’d think people would’ve stopped using coins for reference to avoid these types of things happening...
