    For people like me who did not know what a Higly copper is I posted these picks from Google search. I hope you have one there.

    I to have been feverishly hunting for a higley....one of the main reasons I began detecting. If your from the MASSIVE state of CT, then you may recall the replica Higleys they sold in the gift shops at the Old Newgate Prison? Well, I was convinced I had dug one and was quickly let down by a local coin dealer.....so the search began. I hope you do have one and please take better photos of both sides....I AM GOOD COPPER!

    Very rare coin find if legit, which seems to be the case, hope Dan Freidus replies and helps you with any questions about the coin, what to do with it, etc. If he does not reply, please PM me and I will make sure you get help.

    I hope it is not one of the copies made by Robinson in 1861 or from the Bolen dies in 1864, which would be very similar to what you think you see on the reverse, compared to the Robinson copy. Hopefully Dan Freidus will provide you with the right information or contact for authentication, which should be accomplished by him or someone he recommends.

    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    Don,
    Def hope its not a copy from the 1800s. However it was down about 8 inches, and it was found in Granby Ct which are all good signs. Hope Dan replies soon, I'm getting more excited by the minute

    here are some better pics pic on the top right shows what I believe to be an "A" on the top left of the side with the deer.
    The bottom right shows what I believe is an "O" on the back of the coin. According to the red books picture if the coin is turned then the "o" is where it should be. If its flipped then the "o" is not in the right place.

    I hope it turns out to be a real one for you, what a neat once in a lifetime find!

    Definitely leave it as is now because if that is a "CO" the spacing of the letters will narrow down the reverse and will eliminate the Kenny-Bolen reproduction. It could be the break the expert needs to confirm it.

    PS: It would probably be from the word "COPPER." Similar to this.

    I just added a little to my last post. I don't know how many die varieties there is for these, but it seems only the word copper seems to have that tight spacing. Seeing your first pics I don't think anyone could have said for sure, but those letters could make all the difference. If the person you're waiting on doesn't have these latest shots of the reverse, he should.
