    1794 liberty cap. LARGE CENT!!!!

    UPDATE, from DON OF SOUTH JERSEY, THIS COIN IS A 1794 LIBRARY CAP, THE DATE PLAYED TRICKS ON US!!!few hours to kill this afternoon so I stopped by this 1719 house where ive never had much. I pulled a few buttons out last fall but I figured I'd give it a shot.
    (BOY, IAM SURE GLAD I DID)
    The ground just lite up with targets,
    First coin was the kg111, then i got the barber dime..Was hoping for older silver, but hey its silver.
    Then i dug a few buttons, The sportsmen button with the dog on it I really like! Then came the chocolate tweezers. .That the second pair to come from this site.
    Then it happen, I was walking down the side of the house and i get this weak signal, so i started playing with the detector changing some settings to see if i could get a better hit on it..
    I was able to clean up the signal some, but not TID reading..
    But it was that high wispering tone that you just love!!!!
    Dug down about 9inch a bam!!!!
    This green disc comes out..
    I pick it up, and right away i know its a capped bust by the thickness. .
    I say come on chain cent. (NOPE)
    Not it..lol.
    Anyway i was still really happy..
    I wiped it a little bit in the field, and thought i seen 94..
    So i checked the side for the leaf,
    Hoping the leaf was down to make it the 93 head...
    Didn't know it was much better.
    After a bath in distilled water, followed by a mineral oil bath..
    Yes!!!!! Its a 1793 CAPPED BUST..
    My first one.
    I have found 1793 half cent before, and 2 1794 Large cents..But the 93 has eluded in till today.
    If you could not tell..
    Iam a happy man...
    Thanks for looking, and sorry about this long winded post..
    Just really wanted to share this with you guys.
    My wife just dont get it...lol.
    Ps, i had to take a pick of the house just to show how cool it it..
    George

    Outstanding
    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"
