    Need help identifying very old coins! Added new photos!

    Found these two at the same site that goes back to colonial times several years ago. If I remember correctly in same hole as well. Have never been able to identify them at all. Have been slowly removing layers of dirt from them to this point. Broken coin has some minor detail of possible letters on one edge. Complete coin can almost see outline of a profile with possible characters circling above? Reverse of both am unable to make out anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Added new photos of both sides of each coin. Hope they help. Thanks!

    Looks neat and old. Can you get any more detail? Photos of backs too! Close ups?

    Nice finds, they are crunchy that’s for sure. I think Back of the Boat is on to something with the flowing hair cent. If you could put up some close up shots, that would help immensely

    I agree with Steve.
    If you click on your pics for the 'larger version', you can clearly see the "flowing hair large cent".

    Sorry I'm not seeing that. Looking at several pictures of the different variations of flowing hair cents none of them have a bust that's completely flat on the bottom like the coin in the first pic. The badly corroded one in the second pic is way too far gone for me to even attempt an ID.
