    I like that one, something different!
    "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."

    Welcome back.

    It was on this rally was it?

    Minted! Dug up in a Midlands field, a £1m 'perfect' US threepenny bit from the time of Pilgrim Fathers | Mail Online

    Can you imagine?

    Anyway, the cloth seal is one I haven't seen, I wonder why the boat was on there?
    It's not that unusual for numbers to be stratched on these, I think it was calculations or the yards of cloth etc..

    if it were found here I'd say it was a very Recent production to celebrate something.
    but being from England it certainly intrigues me
