I found this in the woods along the fox river 25 years ago. I think it may have been in a leather coin pouch. Maybe a hunting accident or maybe civil war hostilities. Will never know but an interesting find.

Target practice! I've been finding a lot of swedish coppers with bullet damage through them.

Awesome!
Reminds me the gold coin that stopped a bullet for captain Dixon, on that confederate sub, the Hunley
