CTX 3030 Scores rare Large Cent !!
New to forum here just wanted to post by far my best find since I started detecting 3 years ago.I had a really nice 12-47 reading from my Ctx under one of the trees on my property,which I have found a few nice relics before,but its a bit iron filled.It was 10" down,popped this large dirt encrusted copper,which I placed in my finds pouch and continued detecting for about another hour before callin it a day.Got in the house,ran this coin under the water and saw this large cent with a 7 over a 6 at the end.Looked it up in a couple of books and it appears to be a pretty rare type.Im pretty stunned,Im looking into getting it graded. Give me your opinions on this coin,as to what you think it may grade ect....Thanks All!! HH CTX Tom

What a beauty. It looks like the blunt version. The pointed version is worth thousands.

It is blunt "1" which is the better coin.
