    Connecticut Copper???

    I hope this is a real CT COPPER! I dug it on 6/17/12 on the banks of the farmington river in CT. It is a bust facing left and the date looks to have a (8) in it. The pictures do not show all of the detail that you can see in person. I did not clean it other than a little water. It is better than all of the gold and silver rings I have found put to gether, it is such a piece of history.

    Ever wonder where your thoughts come from?

    Man exists to know and acknowledge and live by the Truth.
    His reward is eternal life.His punishment for failing to do
    so is death.
