    yesterdays hunt..1800-1808 half cent

    Just got a chance to post..
    Great day yesterday with the hillbillies. .
    Seems like the south won!!! Lol.
    Found a few artifacts. .and buttons. .
    4th quarter 3rd down..And bang!!
    When I pulled out of plug thought it said 1794..You could see it and read it...was wrong...Now its almost a blank disc..
    But I can tell its the draped bust ..and cant get a date off it..hoping it was the 1802 cohen 1..
    Wish full thinking...lol
    Has anyone seen the hole punch before??
    I dont believe its one though..Its made of lead...any help would be great. .
    Thanks for looking George

    I've used a bullet to write with in a pinch. I suppose if the paper was coarse enough it would work ok...

    yesterdays hunt..1800-1808 half cent

    I happened to be standing there when he dug the 1/2 cent because it literally was the very first target when we got there. He got out of the truck and walked over near a bush, swung and I heard the e-trac screaming.....I believe he even said.....this one is a good one. If you've never dug a 200 year old copper, you might not believe it, but when they first come out of the ground, you can wipe the dirt away, see details and then in a matter of a few minutes, the air will dry the coin out ( I suppose it's oxidation ) and dates, busts, everything can be lost.

    was wondering when you would post, you still found some unusual things, nice and old

    That lead piece was " sharpened " with a knife just like you'd do to a pencil. George bent it to show how soft is. At first I thought it was some sort of punch.

    Old Dude that's the reason I put some moist dirt in my keeper case and put all my good finds in it. It's comfy in its environment and important to keep it in that environment til you get it home and can do what you need to to clean and stabilize. Old coppers do not like to be pulled from there homes. Keep em in the dirt fellas! I promise it works

    George, seems like,a upheaval of cool finds, like a rock frost. Your a great guy sharing all those spots with all us guys on the site. It kind of gave me a new meaning to, "you make your own luck"
