    I FINALLY broke into the 1700's !!!!!!!!! 1773 Virginia Half Penny!

    I was hunting an old farm today and this was the FIRST target I dug, I have absolutely NO idea what it is, but it has a clear date of 1773....man I am pumped up!!! I scratched it, sadly because it had roots all over, but right now I am so happy I don't even care. Before this my oldest coin was a undated capped bust dime. I still cannot believe I dug a colonial coin in OHIO!!!!! WooHoOOOOO

    I took a bunch of pictures trying to get the best shot and angle....

    James is correct

    That's a great example of a Va halfpenny. I've dug quite a few of those around here, but none show the detail like yours. Great find!!

    That's a great way to break in. Do yourself a favor and read the history behind them. It's very interesting.

    Congrats on your find Terry. Finding that coin in NW Ohio at a random late 1800's farmhouse, I think is amazing. I'm glad I was with you when you got it. I'm extremely happy you snagged it!!

    I am so happy, I can't believe this was dug in my area of Ohio, large cents are even tough to find in my area. I NEVER dreamed I would find a 1700's coin...........wow....I am still on cloud nine!
