    That is awesome.

    Congrats on a great find. They are really thick coins. Don't see those come up to often.

    Thanks again Don! Think I should mess with it (Peroxide) or just leave it be. This baby is worth a little more than the ordinary coins I find and don't want to ruin it.

    Leave it be.................

    Now that I relooked at your field shots,99.999% certain on the S-9 ID...... The one I found is a Sheldon 11-c Lettered Edge with one Oak Leaf.

    ADDED: Talk about irony, you found your 1793 along with a Irish button of some type and I found my 1793 along with a War of 1812 Irish Union Greens button! (And both found in Southern New Jersey)

    I figured by now this would be up on top, but this is the first chance I got to check it out. Banner for sure , but you may have to wait until the Mods come back from Xmas dinner!

    This turned out being quite a year for you with the early US coppers. Keep it up in 2012!

    The video is awesome too! I am going to embed it on my site if it's ok with you
