    My First Large Cent

    Dug this 1822 from an 1872 property that we detect quite often. Found in an area we have gone over a hundred time before. This is the first time I've used my AT Pro at this site!

    Way to go fella! I'm in Wisc and have been trying like crazy to find that elusive LC (love old coppers--as reflected in my signature). Any suggestions on types of Wisc sites to hunt for LCs? I've been trying at old homesteads from ~1860s. Congrats and HH!
    You can keep your greenbacks, give me green cents.

    those old homesteads may work, Try farmfields if possible, compare old maps to current google maps of farm fields and see if you can find some that had colonial era homesites on them. I stumbled upon my honeyhole pretty much by accident but turns out there was a house on it from 1770s to 1860s

    Nice. Just found an 1825 large ¢ent today. My first was narrowed down to the late 1700's from the bust outline. No way I could get a date off it. Also found my first ½ ¢ent on Easter. Unfortunately, no date on that one either.
