    Liberty Cap Half cent at a "hunted out" farm

    Went to a farm today for a couple hours. this place has supposedly been pounded. I thought the same after my first trip there. Found two memorials cents and trash. But this is a big place. So this morning I bundled up and went back. My first find was an older flat button. Then i found a few wheats and another button.
    Right before i was ready to leave I get a signal under a huge old tree and dig a 1797 Liberty Cap half cent. I was stoked! Wanted to stay but ... had plans with the misses. But I will be back Also found this little "Representative" pin?

    Re: Liberty Cap Half cent at at "hunted out" farm

    Congrats on getting a Liberty Cap! I am certain it is a 1797, not a 1794, anyway, hopefully more to come at the "hunted out" site. It looks like a Cohen 1 variety 1 over 1 type.

    Oops, not sure why I typed 94? Anyway, I think your correct on the variety because the one is a bit small and a bit higher than the rest of the date.

    No letters on the side of this. Not even sure if the half cents had that like the one cent Liberty Caps?
