Yea it does feel like a month already. I figured I wont get a positive 100% id unless its in person, but if this guy says its legit that will be enough for me. The variety comfirmation would just be a plus

I'm from the Hartford area and got into metal detecting because of coins like this, knowing CT has some of the oldest history in the us! I would of had a heart attack had I found this, great find!! Are you part of a club or anything, I've been looking for people to go with I don't know anyone who is into this.

When they ran out of the copper, they stopped making the coin. I will try to find the link to the site, it has some neat information.

Coin got sent out today to PCGS. So I'm crossing my fingers. Should know within a week or two if I have the real deal or not. The dealer that sent it out for me examined it and said he thought it looked good, but said there may not be enough detail for them to authenticate it. He showed me some of the replicas casted in the 1800s and they looked smaller then mine. He also taped the side of my coin and it rang unlike the replicas, he said this was a good sign because if it was cast it wouldn't have sounded like that.

It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.
