    Fugio Cent

    I've been super busy this season so not much detecting. I was off work today since school for the kids start tomorrow I was taking them to the Liberty Science Center. I was getting gas last night and received a call from my local historical society with a lead on a 1700s home site. I could not get it out of my mind so before taking the kids out I stopped by the site and this was my only 1700s era find but I'll take it. Actually will go to the historical society for the town museum.

    Enjoy

    Sorry about the phone pictures. I just rinsed it off then put a little candle wax on it. I'm afraid to clean it but there is a lot of detail. The sundial side has everything very clear including the 1787 date. Not clear in picture

    I ADDED MORE PICTURES IN TWO ADDITIONAL REPLIES.

    Nice BANNER find! Can you post some better pictures so we can soak in the sight?

    aj
    Target must be in the ground...Coil must swing over target...User must dig.

    Gold for the money...silver for the pleasure...copper for the history.

    Fantastic...great shape considering the year..
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.
