    1783 Nova Constelatio - Liberty. Justice. Beautiful. Rare!!

    I went back to a colonial site for which I had little hope. I was hoping for just a button or a trinket on this dreary Sunday. It took 1.5 hours to do, but I cleared another 20' x 20' section of heavy bramble, and was rewarded with arguably my rarest coin. A 1783 Nova Constelatio!

    I believe the variety is a "blunt rays" Crosby 3-C.

    Besides some pottery and nails, this beauty was my only find. Funny enough with all the iron this signal was almost completely masked even with the Deus. I actually dug out a big hole and found the coin in the pile. Thanks goodness I didn't smoke it with the shovel. I saw the coin in the clump with rays facing out, and immediately shot a video.

    Thanks to Ahab8 for the field ID, and to Bill D for the cleaning tips. And to Novanumismatics.com for the attribution. And to Joey for, well, being Joey.

    I'm constantly amazed by what is masked by iron, and what's out of reach because of foliage. It's actually quite a wonderful prospect for the future.

    My god that thing is incredible Steve. Your big ugly head makes it look even nicer lol. Psyched to see a beautiful early copper that we rarely ever see. I'll vote BANNER on this coin. Condition and rarity. A copper in this condition is hard enough as it is to find. A nice scarce one like this makes it super special

    There was a reason I included my head in the video. as you know I was worried about the cleaning but it seems to have turned out ok.

    Thanks for the vote bud
