    I had originally posted that my best find was an 1805 Draped Bust large cent, found while I was in the Navy in Monterey, CA.

    Since posting, I have found five more that beat the snot out of that ol' DB largie ~ and they were all found in the same place!

    Somehow I don't think I'll ever do any better than these, but I hope Karma & Fate see this and say, "Oh yeah? Watch!"

    The Draped Bust is no slouch but the Indian and the Flowing Hair are just inspiring.

    EXCELLENT FINDS
