    Miss Liberty Showed Up Today. Draped!

    It was a very nice day today so I decided to hit an area in Dover, Delaware where I had found a couple of KG II Pennys last year. To my amazement I found, what appears to be, a 1805 Draped Bust Half Cent! This is the first half cent I have ever found. I also found what appears to be another KG II but it's a smoothie. I'm gonna see what an extended olive oil bath might do for George. This is the 4th Colonial/Confederation coin I have found at this site.
    I'm as happy as a little girl!!
