    Can't ask for much better than that. Such a great patina and to think there's some that would probably have stripped it away.

    Great looking coin Don! The off center strike makes it look even more old and primative.

    Don't forget to add it to your NJ Copper survey

    I want to show that the coin did not come out of the ground like my original photos show, so here is a combined photo of the coin as found and then after half hour of soaking in hot peroxide and wiping off the loose dirt crud. I could have gone further with the dirt removal, but leaving the recessed areas as is brought out great relief of the high areas. I soaked in warm distilled water for about an hour after the peroxide bath and than dried thoroughly under a desk lamp.

    "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."

    You have the opposite soil than we do in this region. Your coppers look amazing, but your silver coins are often coated. By us the silvers look great, but the coppers are generally shot.

    I love that strike on the NJ copper. Glad to hear you are feeling better.

    I would vote "banner" but I don't wanna hafta see another one up there until I get mine!

    Nice work on the cleaning. Who says you can't clean rare coppers Even though it ain't no stinkin' 5000 dollar gold coin or ring, it should be on the banner just because its so damn nice. I vote banner.
