    1877 Indian Head Cent

    I found a lot of Indian Head Cents in this park and today I got a key date 1877 Indian Head Cent. Didn't know until I got home and washed it. I also Found the rusty Iron Key.

    This park had a dance hall until it burnt in 1926.
    July 1860's or 70's brought crowds of farmers and townspeople to the "Oronoco Picnic Grounds."They sat on planks seats around a band stand of rough-hewn lumber and listened to melodies by the Oronoco Silver Coronet Band and a Quartet.
    On June 28,1898,the Modern Woodmen of America gathered crowds at the Oronoco "Picnic Grounds" for a county picnic.

    Another one shows up.

    Nice find. Too bad ones on the banner now.

    Oh well. I'll still vote banner. I think all 1877 IH's should make banner.

    Congrats on a banner coin.

    I voted banner for you. This is still a key date and in great condition! It is amazing how well dirt will keep a coin.

    Congrats on the 1877!! Yeah, that sounds like it was a good setup for someone to drop a '77 IH. I bet you were pretty stoked when you saw the date on that!

    I like the key also, of course. Iron, no less.

    Thanks everyone for the nice replies.
    I was shocked when I seen the date. I never thought I'd find a key date Indian in this park. After two hours of detecting I found it and detected four hours. When I got home I washed it and then I got out the 10x loupe and took a look and about fell over.
