    Wahoo !!!!!! A dream comes true !!!!

    Research and hard work finally paid off in a huge way !!!!

    I was finding mostly late 1800's relics and coins but knew the area was farmed as early as the 1640's so the potential was there for something really old to come out of the ground. I have been dreaming of finding one of these coins for years. I have seen 'Tree Coins' dug by other hunters which was quite a thrill. But, nothing compares to locating and digging one for yourself.

    It's a 1662 Oak Tree Two Pence. It's the tiny thing next to the Barber and Mercury dimes. It's not in great shape but it's not holed or bent and it's the prettiest thing I've dug in the 30+ years that I've been detecting and I couldn't be happier !!!

    Thanks for looking and Happy Hunting !!!

    Come On!!

    If that's the best thing you have found in 30+ years of detecting, then it deserves a better pic.

    Let's see a closeup of the front and back of the coin!! I'm sure the mods would love a good pic of it for the BANNER!!!
    Being on the West coast, I've never seen this type of coin before.

    Congrats,

    Outstanding find! My son and I found two 1788 Massachusetts cents last week, but both are pretty much unreadable. So at over 100 years older, I think your find is in incredible shape. You should be doing the happy dance!!!

    Re: Wahoo !!!!!! A dream comes true !!!!

    Thanks for the replies guys... I'm still shaking !!!! I used that pic to show the size comparison to the dimes. This coin is tiny. But, since you all want to see close ups. Here they are: (hopefully when the wife gets home with the 'good' camera I can get some better pics...)

    What a day !!!!
