Two weeks ago, I was hunting the backyard of a friend who lives on the site of Fort Heileman, a Second Seminole War fort located in Middleburg, Florida. I thought this was just another encrusted flat button that had lost it's shank, but when I finally got to cleaning it last night, I had a pleasant surprise; it was an 1837 large cent, and it's cleaned up nicely. I'll post some pics.
