    1722 Rosa American!!!

    I figured it was a King George 1st 2nd or 3rd, but the corrosion and pitting through me off, so I thought maybe its a counterfeit. Then I saw the rose on the back and looked it up and its a William Wood Rosa America token, that were rejected by the colonies. I have never found one before. The reason its in such poor condition is that it is made of 24.7% zink. the rest is 75%copper and .3% silver. I am just super excited I found this coin. I also found a great Waltham watch factory pocket watch. Unfortunately I washed the face with water and rubbed off the black hand painted numbers, but you live and learn. I am assuming its gold plated. Also found 6 Winthrop Beach Casino umbrella tags. Casino's have been illegal in mass for years, so I have to figure out whats the deal with these.
    The other interesting bronze piece looks like it would have went on the end of something.Click image for larger version.

    wow, great find. Looks like a good spot your in. Maybe the brass thing is the tip to an umbrella? Like the big ones resorts would put on the beach, say a resort like a casino? Those tags are hella cool too...

    I found a 1788 Connecticut Copper sitting on the sill of a fallen in farm house once, its the only colonial coin I've ever held, let a alone find, its so worn you can hardly make anything out, but man is it cool...

    Those are hard coins to find in good shape. Coin-grats on a nice one!

    Yeah, anything painted has to dry completely and be dry brushed, otherwise it will brush off. I learned that the hard way with handpainted marbles.

    P.S.--the big brass piece is certainly a hame topper.

    Very nice Casper,
    It was dark and last target I dug for the day. I new it was larger than a quarter so thought it was a large copper, but the weight of it thoroughly me off so I put it in my pouch. When I got home I thought it might be a presidential commemorative piece.
    Glad i joined the Rosa club!
    It's the zink that caused issues.
    Thanks for all the feedback.
