    You have a rare find there, I'm sure many can't claim that they have one of those. I say that you should consider that your "lucky coin" My 2 cents.....

    The "Q" is for Quality Manufacturers.

    It's a keeper for sure.
    Better than another crusted modern cent.
    Whose idea was it to make cent coins that expire by rotting away in the dirt?

    Big al -this is a true story.....

    I was detecting next to the historic section in Bethlehem PA. I got a nice deep signal...dug it up ....could not believe my eyes a 1773 Virginia Half-penny in absolutely incredible shape....I could not detect anymore and went home.................now my eyes are changing and I always get my daughter to check the dates.etc,..........she goes yep 1773 and over here it says GLORY and I'm thinking that makes sense.........I am all pumped up........and show it to my wife and say Lauren(my daughter) told me some of the stuff on it then my wife goes what's this mean over here- C-O-P-Y....................and I was so bummed........some company makes replicas for the gift shop up the hill.
