    Such a nice coin secondstar! Looks to be in good shape too. I'm with you...nothing better than finding an old copper. For me, digging one up where you can actually read the date is a bonus.

    That's a beauty Mike, this has been quite the year for large coppers. I'm convinced there's more at this location too bad it's such a long drive from home!
