Another 1793 chain cent
I also found one about 5 years ago before my TNET days. Been thinking about showing it since joining. Sooooo here it is. As you can see from the first picture that NGC would not authenticate it due to its condition. I can( in person) see the flowing hair and date and chain. Found it along a river beach in NJ with a metal detector.

Yes rare it is but if I can't have it authenticated then who would want it, Is their someone out there whom could verify authenticity?

I think you could contact someone through earlycoppercoins.com. You could try emailing ... Shawn Yancey is the man who runs the site, you'll probably get a reply. I've purchased coins from him, great guy.
