    Super Sweet 1739 George ll Out Of The Sugar Sand, Wow!!!

    Went back to the fields with my Whites MXT while my DFX is being repaired. Forgot just how sensitive the MXT is when its cranked all the way up. Walking along the edges of the fields a weak high-low broken signal. I took an 8 inch divet out and scanned the hole, a loud high signal, it was still in the hole. I thought soda can slaw. Another 8 inches it was out of the hole. I used my pin pointer to knock away the dirt and I couldn't believe my eyes, lettering as clear as day, picture time. I pulled it from the pile and immediately started talking to myself, I think I was answering myself to. What a Georgie... The big decorative blowhole button is the largest and only decorative one I have found to date. arty

    They always look so nice coming out of loamy sand/soil. Major congrats! Won't need any further cleaning. Looks stunning.

    Thanks all. I'm still in disbelief that I found one in this condition. The oldest coin to come out of this field was an 1851 flying eagle penny, found by SouthJerseyJim. I wasn't expecting this oldie to show its face. Back to beating the brush today. Look out can slaw here I come... Arty

    Based on condition alone this belongs on the banner! Can't remember seeing one posted in such nice condition.
    If the elevator tries to bring you down, go crazy, punch a higher floor!

    Thanks romeo-1. It is the nicest dug early copper I have had the pleasure of looking at. The picture just doesnt do it justice compared to holding it in the sunlight. The detail is incredible, WOW... Arty
