    Louis, I'm sure he still has it. It was 1803. He got another one, 1779, that my grandmother found years ago when she worked at the Mellon Bank branch in Ligonier. Half reals ring up at 87 on my XP Deus, same as a copper Lincoln penny. I have found 29 of them over the years, but all were on sites where you could expect to find one. I've never had one turn up on an unexpected site. I have talked to two other guys that have eyeballed them while hunting arrowheads. I know the field where one of them was found, but they don't plow it anymore.

    Wow yeah, I seen your signature stats and you've found a lot of them. It's hard to imagine many people finding 29 (or more) in a lifetime. To spot one while looking for arrowheads is amazing. I suppose I found mine the hard way just randomly searching the woods. I went back yesterday and only found a 1906 IH and miners tag. I think I probably found the best coin in those woods but I'll keep going to be sure.
