    Sweet Indian head find. 1859

    I just can't believe how good of shape it is for being found in the ground.

    Not just a great find in great condition, but a one year type coin. They only made this one in 1859. It has the reverse with the laurel wreath without the shield. I found one about 30 years ago, but it can't hold a candle to yours. Really nice find.
