    Beautiful King George III Halfpenny, Beautiful 1853 Dime, LC, and 1863 Token

    Kirk, Chris, and I got out to a new farm last Sunday. It was very windy, so we didn't stay any longer than two hours.

    Right on the fringe of the field that we had permission for, I got a nice dime reading. It turned out to be the 1775 King George III halfpenny. I yelled for the fellas to come over. I later found the 1863 store token and 1853 Seated Liberty dime in the immediate vicinity. Kirk got his 1832 Capped Bust half dime in this iron patch as well. We believe the early site sat in the next field over. Unfortunately, we don't have permission for that yet. We will seek it in Spring.

    The cut Braided Hair large cent was found at another home site on the farm. The site was producing some tombac buttons and pewter spoon pieces, so we'll give that one another shot as well in Spring.

    We also are going to be exploring some other promising fields on this parcel. I think at least one more will be producing some early keepers!

    Kyle, like the others have said, the find of the day was that token! Not too shabby of a KGIII though. Two silvers that day, hmmmmn, too high of a silver to copper ratio! LOL

    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    Good job, bro, on digging some fine coins. We will be sweeping on this parcel in the Spring. I am juicing up my machine for some good 2011 digging.

    Pretty nice "COPPER!" there. .....and the dime is very sharp. The token is something high on my list.

    Thank you for the replies, everyone!

    In my opinion, the King George III was the day maker. Yes, the store token is a not-so-seen find, but I'd much rather have a nice Colonial coin any day of the week.
