    Got out for about a hour and a half this morning with johnnymac. Dug this unknown (at the time) Chinese coin. I get home to post it on "what is it?" and don't you know, joe-dirt posted the same exact coin he found yesterday.
    Thanks to detect-or-fish's research it's a Emperor KOA TSUNG AD 1736-1795, CH'IEN-LUNG, from the BOO YUWAN mint.
    Great find for me. My first Chinese coin and my oldest coin to date. Thanks for looking.
