    What a great, great coin you have found, I say that because it is a thrill and a half to find one with a lot of nice detail on it, but one like yours with the extreme amount of wear on it, can't help but make you wonder about it's story, from it's "birth" in France (1807-1814) to it's "re-birth" in Calif. 2018. All the hands it was held in, all the pockets & purses it was carried in, and all the counters it was slid across for all the things it may have bought. If it could only talk and tell you it's story, what an evening that would be. Very nice find.

    Thanks so much! That would be amazing! Sometimes the best coins have a little wear on them because that way you just know how much history it witnessed.

    Great find. Those old coins are hard to find in many parts of California

    I believe that there was a shortage of coinage in the US prior to 1850.
    As a result, many well worn foreign coins were in circulation.

    Later, the primary currency was raw gold and coin.
    Although I have read that much of the transactions were via promissory notes and trade for goods and labor.
