    It been ages since I posted anything. I don't detect much this time of year but I decided to go to a colonial spot near my house. This copper is pretty rough I can make out a bust facing right and what looks like a hair tie on the back of the head. The other side is scratched up and I can't make out anything. This spot has turned up alot of LCs and a Connecticut copper. This one I found today is around the same thickness as a Connecticut copper. Any ideas?

ID:	1750656. I added another pic of the bust and a pic of the reverse next to a Connecticut copper for size comparison.

    I think it might be a machin mills coin. Machin mills was located right across the street from where I live and the site where I found it is about 2 miles away.

    Looks like it might be a King George the 3rd with the hair tie but could also be a machins mills counterfeit copper
