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.
