    1810 Classic Head Half Cent

    A very nice, very old half cent. This heat is pretty awful...especially if you are slogging through the woods. You get bonus points for getting out there!

    That is an awesome find. For some reason I like half cents a little more than largies. Though I have dug neither great find !

    Nice find Toasted. The Half Cent is a tough coin to find ( at least here in Illinois ). I have only found one in 30 years.

    Ive got a entire mason jar full of coppers that wouldnt fetch $10

    Ive got maybe 5 half cents. They are much harder to find than large cents and British coppers
