    Great day in the field, NJ state copper (close ups added)

    Hi All,

    Today I went to another new spot and did really well. Found 2 large cents (1 looks to be early) a couple of King George types, a really nice NJ state copper, an Indian head and some buttons. The two large buttons are pretty unique looking and the small reads W H I F of 76 & 34. Can someone help with id'ing that large copper disk with a stud? Hope to have more days like this one!

    Nice NJ copper. What's the date of the Indian?

    Congrats on a super hunt, of course I am always interested in any NJ copper find and as Hogge requested, I second that request for photos of both sides as close as you can to the coin for variety ID purposes. I would appreciate if you PM me the state and county found in for my NJ survey.
    The button you found is a WHIGS campaign button, many varieties of them, so a closeup of that might help. I found one years ago with a nice Liberty Cap on the front and the writing on the backside.

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    That qualifies as an old coin spill Bud!!! WTG on some historic recoveries, Quindy.
    Everyone will make a good find on occasion. The challenge is to find CW relics consistently.

    The one disc with the tapered stud looks like a golf shoe cleat.
