    1656 copper

    What's up everyone, was detecting for a bit yesterday behind my house (south shore mass) and found my second 1650's liard de france. The first one was found about 100 feet away back in 2017. Looks to have a G mint Mark? On the back.

    That's nice. I've only found one pre 1780 French coin ever. Those puppies are hard to get. Nice job.
