    !~1793 Flowing Hair Wreath and Bars Large Cent!~

    Well Christmas sure came early today! I ventured out to an old stand by expecting to suck up a button or two but was very pleased with my finds today. The rain in the area made the loamy ground very soft and wet. I was picking signals for a solid 2 hours out of an area pounded by many detectorist including myself. First signal was a nice tombac button. About 20 minutes later I got a very loud solid 92 on my T2 very shallow. Thinking can or quarter on the surface. I flipped this bad boy out of the ground and nearly died when I wiped the dirt off the face! HOLY #@$E%. I was hunting solo so I just quietly celebrated making several phone calls to m hunting buddies. Beautiful 1793 Wreath and Bars large cent!!

    After finding this I pounded the area and came up with some beautiful buttons too. One looks to be some sort of NJ National guard. Scoville back

    Banner for sure! Seriously, I can't stop looking at it. Amazing detail left on that thing. I just showed it to my wife in Red Book and she said "why cant you find coins like that". LOL

    Figures. Never see an exact button like that ever dug, and than I think I saw it in another post. Wow, weird how that works.

    Nice.
    If you don't look, you won't find!

    Re: !~1793 Flowing Hair Wreath and Bars Large Cent!~

    Super congrats Jim!!!! Banner one for sure and really unusual seeing that harp button appear again so soon! I may have to look into IDing that one, but I also like the NJNG button, I found one identical to it back in the late 1980s!
    The reverse and edge seem to indicate it is a Sheldon 9 variety, the highest mintage one of the Wreath type.
    Attaching a cropped combined photo of the Obverse and Reverse. Also a link for the coinfacts info on a Sheldon 9 http://www.coinfacts.com/large_cents..._cent_s009.htm

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."
