    1793 chain cent

    Good evening everyone. This morning I was able to get out for a bit after finishing a few errands. I wasn't to excited or feeling it(lucky) but, I went anyway. Found an iron patch and it all started lol.... Just target after target and NO trash! This evening when I started looking at the finds I noticed one of them seemed different. I mean it felt thicker then the other three I found. As I was delicately cleaning it I noticed the chain. The one side looks good but, the other will be a challenge. In the three hours I was there these are my finds.

    Thanks for looking,

    I added these two photos to show the slow and little progress I've made with the detail of this coin! Just taking my time. There is a coin shop close by any thoughts?

    Whoa bro that's a ridiculous find and looks to ha e done really good detail. I'd be real careful with that bad boy. I'm the meantime that needs to be on the BANNER before I go to bed. I can't congratulate you enough my friend.

    Sensational! Just reading the words "chain cent" gets me wound up. I can't imagine what would happen if were to actually find one. Your coin has some serious value and must be treated with great care. I'm hoping there is enough detail left to determine a variety. An obvious banner coin, congratulations to you.
