    1784 Large Halfpenny!!!!! UPDATE!!! SOLD!

    UPDATE
    I went to the Coin show in Baltimore today. I spoke to maybe 30
    dealers. The 1784 and the two other large coppers (1771 and 1776) that were found at
    the same site within a short period of time were purchased
    by a dealer for a "handsome price"! Cruising around the show I happened by the same
    dealer who grabbed me out of the isle to introduce me to a man that bought all three
    of my "collection".
    The gentleman proceded to ask me for my phone number so that he could interview me
    later about the "wonderful collection of imitations that came from one yard". He seemed
    VERY excited and told me that the numismatic society should "work more closely with
    Metal Detecting Community in order that these kinds of finds with stories could see the
    light of day and be shared with all as a genuine History recovering operation".
    Just a note.... I Cleaned all three of the coins, and both the dealer and the buyer were
    extremely happy with the end results after seeing the "before" photos. I thought I had
    screwed up by cleaning them, apparently not.
    I highly recommend these types of shows for us detectorists. I learned so much from
    almost everyone I spoke to.


    UPDATE....
    I contacted several auction houses in regards to this coin and after viewing the coin
    the estimated price for the coin varied but averaged in the $1000+ Range. SHWEEEEET!!!
    I know that it was pure luck, finding this coin. I hope everybody gets a chance to make a
    find that is better than their usual finds.
    I know that this is not a big deal to most, but it is to me.
    Thanks for all the comments and messages!!!



    Yesterday I got permission to hunt a property that has
    belonged to the same family since the 1700s. The lady
    that owns it now has us working to keep the place
    historical and liveable.
    This morning, Civilman, Howard and myself hit the place
    running. Now, it has been detected before, but we have
    no idea how much.
    The property has the main house, the original house
    (four rooms), A butchering and smoke house, a blacksmiths
    shop, a brick privy, a spring house at the well, a log
    hog barn, a huge barn, and four other misc. buildings.
    The property is on 200 acres and also has a lime kiln
    that had an explosion and went out of business in 1905.
    The property is also directly on the route that the
    soldiers used to leave the battle of Gettysburg.
    So we have high hopes for the place.
    Today I found a 1784 MACHIN'S MILLS HALFPENNY!!!
    Here are some photos. Enjoy!
