    Sweet hunt. I love that Lincoln Half, super big silver coin. The coin on the left definitely looks like a Seated Half, I would be tempted to clean it up a bit more. Does look imprinted, but maybe just very worn and now tarnished. Is the token on the right silver as well? Congrats

    I love those commemorative halves! Such cool and unique coins. I've never found one. If you can get some close ups with better lighting I would love to see these on the TNet banner!!!

    Those are great silvers. The reverse on that Lincoln coin is impressive. Congrats on some unique finds.

    The 1918 low-mintage commemorative is a real beauty but the worn silver half is a curiosity to me.
    It's really great that you found those 3 "weirdos" in the same area. !
    I straightened out the obverse & pasted it next to an 1839 seated half to make an easier comparison. A real expert
    is needed to take a real close look at the coin but I'm making a "guess" that it is an 1839 because of a few clues although a few things don't jibe exactly. Maybe someone here can pick out a few more clues as to its exact date.
    It's only a guess by me but here goes;
    I see what looks like a flat-topped "3" under the base of the seated lady in the correct vertical position, but it looks kind of too close to that base. (could be because of wear) If it was a "7" in that position, the reverse would have a motto banner above the eagle, so I rule out it being a "7". The pole & cap though faint, appear to be ok & the stars seem to be in correct position also. The only seated half, pre the "mottoed" 1873 that has a flat-topped "3" in its date is the 1843, but the "3" would be further to the right than in the 1839.
    Below are the 2 pictures with some markings for comparison. Maybe some of our fellow posters can spot some
    other clues that add to the search for its existence. I hope it's authentic. Whatever it is, it's a cool find among 2 other
    cool finds. Nice going !!! Cheers !!

    Sorry....I forgot to include the reverse of your coin straightened out. As I was doing it, I noticed that there seems to be
    some double-striking on your coin. The "E" in STATES up top, the "ERICA" in AMERICA & the "L" in HALF
    at the bottom are double struck. Strange but VERY INTERESTING !!!

    I’m definitely not an expert but could it be a home made piece intending to represent an 1853 arrows and rays half dollar?

    It looks hand engraved to me - the detail is incuse and quite crude and importantly it’s the right way round so it hasn’t been stamped off another coin.

    There look to be straight line marks to the right of the wing, to the left of the beak and under the talons that could be an attempt to depict the rays. This would also fit with the lack of banner and maybe with your observations on the date?

    That is the oddest grouping I have seen in a long time.

    Well done.

    Jose .. Thank you for taking the time to compare the coins and for your thoughts and information. If the sun ever shines again here, I will try to get some better photos of the coins. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks to all who have taken the time to look , comment, and like! I appreciate you all.

    Quite an unusual group of coins to find in one place. Doesn't quite rank up there with a change purse full fo gold and silver coins from a Civil War hut, but still pretty impressive. Yes Rob, if you could get better pictures in good daylight, that might help show these coins in their full glory.
