    Good luck club, Colorado copper slug

    I found these out hunting with my son. I love the Good luck coins. Jed found the sample tin! It's a good year for me with 2 IHPs this year!! I have spent too long looking at the copper slug. We found it at an older site where a squirrel livery button came from. Is there a size to colonial coppers? It was so smooth with patina. I soaked it in pickle ( a light acid like lemon juice or ketchup). If I look long enough I see a face and some words. It would be pretty cool to find a copper coin here in Colorado. 1 and 3/16th inches across. Maybe it is a European coin and maybe just a well loved copper slug. Happy Hunting and GOOD LUCK!!!!Click image for larger version.

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

    Here's some info on Mr. Palmer (cold cream). Note the Garland of Roses perfume was created in 1868 through the article does not mention when the cream began.

    Cool token, way to go one the IHP and, yes, the old coppers can be found here. I dug one in the 80's that is bent and really worn but you can still see a bust on one side. Grats and good luck up there.

    call me crazy but the first photo of the slug looks like it might have a right facing bust. Could be a KGIII. But could be other things as well.

    I have found quite a few Palmer items over the years and have a nice green perfume bottle. It looks like the cream tin is an early item in his line of things. Thanks Don.
    Thanks xr7ator, I love when you find things older than they should be! I bet it's hot in Denver today!
    Thanks RJ, it's always nice detecting!!!
    Xcopperstax, thank you for the post. I wouldn't of posted it except I see the same thing. Is 1 and 3/16 the correct size or do they all vary??

    1235CE, I had to do some research about the coin. It looks like I didn't make it into the 1700's but close. He was known as the mad King. Pretty cool. Attachment 1835951

    If we're seeing what we think we're seeing, it's a little older. like in the 1770s.. it's also possible if that is indeed a right facing bust that you could be 100 years earlier in the late 1600s with a King William III halfpenny.

    I appreciate you taking the time to look at the coin Evolution. Thank you for your help. I sure see a right facing bust. I have been looking at examples this am, but can't quite make a match. I imagine that with it being so worn it will be hard
