    Great find . A very valuable coin even in dug condition. My guess would be a few thousand dollars. I agree with those who commented on cleaning; less is more. And as far as” professional” cleaning unless it’s someone at a museum I’d be very skeptical. Once it’s really messed with it will loose patina and in my opinion it’s unique character.And if you aren’t going to sell it why bother. Also your coin would appeal to a coin collector who for instance wants it to complete a large cent collection or wants a coin for a type set. A collector of high end coins would be much less interested. In any event awesome find.

    Maybe the third or fourth chain cent to appear on Tnet since I started detecting in 2015. Colonial gold (if it is indeed colonial) is probably as rare a find though. If that ring was marked or engraved(posy ring) it would surpass the toasted chain cent by far in my mind. Not many youtubers hunting colonial as I would like to see so keep up the good work

    Phenomenal coin! Excellent job giving some history of the coin's design and why it was changed. I actually learned something. Congrats brother.

    I watched your video yesterday on YouTube. I’ve never even heard of that cent until then. Thank you so much to all you guys for everything you do. Congratulations on the BANNER find.

    Watched the vid yesterday Kurt, congrats bro! I'm glad the reverse is legible. Also extremely cool that you can see Lady Liberty's forehead, eyes and nose. What a great find.

    Keep it up!
