    1801 drapped bust large cent

    Today I had a great find, I eyeballed this field a couple of weeks ago and today I hunted it.
    Was supposed to hunt with a friend today but he couldn't make it so I had to go it alone. I
    was told by a friend over the years they held alot of sporting avents in this field, so of corse
    I got excited, I bet I hunted for atleast an hour before I dug up a penny, ten minutes later
    got a dime, also found some junk, but alot less than I thought I'd find.Twoards the end of my
    hunt I was near where I started, but alittle to one side and bam I get my best signle of the
    day 82 on my DFX I dig it up only two inches down, I look and see its a big penny and right
    away I hope for an older one, without my cheaters I couldn't see it clearly so I licked my finger
    and rubbed it a little and see the sliowet of the capped busted head and 1801, what a find
    my best large cent in 15 years of hunting. Just yesterday I quoted on a post about hopeing to
    find one and now I own one finally. Hope to find gold tomorrow ha ha.sorry about the pic, I don't have a good camra.Click image for larger version.

    No doubt a keeper! Anyone with the name Leprechaun should always have good luck. Do you have any to spare?
