    i took it to the college and we look at it under magnifiers and microscopes and no evidence of any lettering at all. it sure was exciting to find, whatever it is.

    it really does not look like a knock out thing, def a plausible hypothesis though. since there is nothing visible, there really is not much i can do. it is just one of those fun mysteries that sometimes comes with this hobby. keeps life exciting.

    hi, long time. i took a sabbatical and am back at it. thanks for the information. this thread was dead for awhile, but it got revived. made me pull this object back out and look at it more. never did figure it out, maybe never will. those #s are helpful, thanks for posting.

    Copper rounds approximately nickel sized turn out to be farthings or halfcents in my experience.
    Unless its a Woods issue, then its a halfpenny
    I will follow up on the xrf analysis when i get access to my mainframe, a day or two.
    HH all.
    Desire is oft more pleasant than acquisition

    it is nickle size, maybe a hair larger. it is thinner than a nickle though. it is about the thickness of a dime.

    the nick has been put there, maybe i hit it when i dug it, but i dont think so. looks old. something hit it as it is bent a hair. i am convinced it is an OLD coin. or, maybe i want to believe that, lol. we looked at it under a microscope and heavy magnification at work, not a letter or anything, not a one.
