    DRAPED BUST (1796-1807)!!!!

    In-laws are in town for 4 days. My father in law wanted me to bring him detecting to see how it works. I have been worried thinking well only find clad, but just as we were leaving dug my first large cent. We found it today. Dug it about 3 inches. Its in poor shape, can't see a date, but you can make out the flowing hair. I have been wanting to find a large cent, but never thought it would be this old. I'm on cloud nine. We both couldn't believe it. He thought I planted it at first, which I had been considering.
    Thanks for looking.
