    Lincoln in the center. On the right, 2nd one down is a button, and 18th century, one on the far left is probably an 18th century copper coin, worn out.

    Bottom left is a Spanish maravedis (copper) and to it's right an early 20th Century British halfpenny or penny.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Welcome to Treasurenet !
    You may wish to consider placing a number or letter next to each coin to facilitate identification; then take reverse side images of each object.

    Nice finds Marc, congrats! Please keep us posted as the cleaning and ID progress!

    Say jewelerguy, lighten up a bit with that ancient thing would Ya? I was nine when
    they were first minted. I believe that was the same year the construction started
    for Dulles Airport.

    Best wishes all!
