    I dug another 100 targets. All were 20th century. All wound up in the trash.

    Not with those lines. We did find a few of those, and US large cents as late as the 1830's. I didn't get any of the large cents.

    Farm fields are tough on coppers, but those two King George pieces are nice. Congrats!

    You found a few nice but challenging keepers in all of that mess!

    8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9

    It hurt so bad when I got home! I'm taking the unidentified whatzit to a notable coin dealer today. As hard as I can try I can't match it to any button, and it is the wrong size for a GW button. I should have noticed that first.

    Ok, it's been figured out. It's a 1783 Georvius Triumpho copper. These were made right at end of the Revolutionary War. The coins were made in England. Even a "bad" example can cost a few bucks. This is the only one I have found and one of the few I have ever seen in person.

    The shield lines seem to be in the correct location for a GWI.

    Great finds!
    Nice ID. All I could see was an off center face.
