    CTX 3030 Scores rare Large Cent !!

    Hi All,
    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.

    No point making grading companies rich, they will say enviromental damage, keep your money, it's a good VF.

    SUPER COIN.

    BANNER FIND !

    and in your "own" (?) yard no less, how much luck can someone have.

    I believe Ground Inspector has it reversed. The OP's coin IS the rare one that is worth thousands! It has a blunt "1" that nearly touches the curl. Sheldon 272. The very common one is Sheldon 273, which has a pointed "1" distant from the curl. Here is an example of Sheldon 272 in lower grade that sold for $3500.
