    1853 Braided Hair Cent

    It's time I posted my large cent where it might stay for awhile.
    I found this around 5 years ago in the town of Mazeppa,Minnesota.
    It was under the grass in sandy soil 3 or 4 inches down.
    It's the only large cent I ever found. It has some dings on it and
    all I did to it was toothbrush,soap and water clean up. Roger

    Beautiful coin Dodger but I gotta' ask - what the h*#% are the green things?!
    "The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere"

    We do find large cents like that in PA. I found an 1818 in PERFECT shape two years ago, and we found about 5 Coronet cents in that condition at the "Coronet Field" last October.
    Those early PA settlers did too much and that is why coppas are found in abundance!

    The Three Datectateers will miles to find the Colonial "stuff"!

    KirkKyleChris (KKC) and to those long-forgotten, coppa-dropping settlers!

    Re: 1853 Braided Hair Cent

    You guys are too much. LOL!

    You're right about the large cents. They are not very common around here.
    Mazeppa has also been good to me over the years. I found my first seated liberty half dollar in the city park on the day my son was born. (Nov. 15, 1975) but that's another story.
    WTG!
