    My first Classic Head Half Cent and more large copper and silver

    Four more good coins and another complete crotal bell were tonights highlights. I havent found a half cent in years so pretty excited about that. Its not in great condition but its definitely an 1809 classic head. I really hope some old silver is hiding out there but its not looking good at this point

    Nice, Toast! The Half-Cent still hiding from me, still lurking in the "Wanted" column... Love that shade of green (Colonial Copper). Ddf.

    Nice job on the coins, especially the Half Cent. I've only found one of those (1804). They just don't pop out of the ground very often.

    Excellent finds! I hope to get my coil over one of those soon but they rarely appear. I wonder what you could buy for half a cent back then! Congrats!

    This is only my 4th in 4 years. I now have a draped bust, classic head and braided hair variety. Interesting why they even bothered minting the half cent. It surely wasnt a coin that circulated much at all
