    i couldnt believe it when i pulled this bad boy out of the dirt. the only problem is the only part worn off us the dang date..but based on pictures, i have the matrohn head coronet large cent struck in 1816-1839. it has a line under the "cent" in the back, and the curl of her hair under the neck identifies it as well...now its been a month since i started metal detecting, and stuff keeps getting older and better. i feel i cannot stop now... ever.. this hobby is worse than crack!

    Good find!
    Great day for you! I just back myself, and all I found today was some clad. Still love the hunt though!

    Nice find! Very nice detail on that LC.

    It is odd to me that there is that much detail on the coin but the date is gone. Possibly a counterfeit?

    With no apparent date, could this possibly a pattern strike?

    nice LC.
    you can narrow your search down to 1836-1839,
    and if you post a pick of the back, the date could be narrowed down even more.

    I was thinking the same thing, is the spelling of the word "Cent" on the back altered in any way?
