    1800 draped bust

    Went out yesterday with evolution, we detected a baseball field that's next to a 1850's house. Detected for about an hour with no luck, than I get a hit on the at pro. 82 at 8 inches. I dig a deep plug and dig a little more and in the hole is a LC. It's my 3rd this year (the others had no detail). I was very happy to see the date 1800 drape bust LC. My first post this year.Click image for larger version.

    Awesome detail on an old coin? When I have found a large cent they are mostly toasted. The soil must be kinder there. Nice job!

    I love that coin Tony. Sweet detail! She was a deep one. That AT pro sniffed it out for you. That spot might be a good one to go back to in the future. You need to slow down though because I don't like losing our "first good coin found" lunch bet.

    Nice 1800 Large Cent..... Not 100% sure of the variety (Many for 1800) but it might be a Sheldon 194, noted for a Fraction bar that is high and closer to the numerator than the denominator. If it is than the Obverse is a1800 over 179 variety, you might be able to see part of the 9 in the first 0, I cannot tell from your photo, if so than 100% ID'd I hope it is, that would be a great addition to anyones collection........ http://www.largecents.net/collection/coinpics/s194.jpg

    "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."

    Always a thrill seeing a huge green disc come out of the dirt!

    You got me beat, my oldest Large Cent is 1805! Then again, I have found a French Liard from the 1650's, a 1723 Wood's Hibernia, and a King George II Half Penny.
