    US 1700's coin found [not by me]

    Not sure if this has already been posted or if this guy is a member here, he made dailymail with this great find

    Man with a metal detector finds one cent coin dating back to 1798 buried under just a few inches of soil outside Maine church

    • Shane Houston discovered the historic coin in Embden, Maine last month
    • The penny was produced in 1798 - just six years after the first American mint was opened
    • Houston says the coin may only be worth $200, due to its deteriorated condition
    • The North Carolina native has uncovered many historic trinkets with his metal detector, including a British musket ball dating back two centuries
    Silver Worm and gunsil like this.
