Got a nice variety again today, the 1859 Canadian being my favorite recovery. The 1856 general service button is also a rare find here in Ohio. Any help identifying the other fancy buttons would be greatly appreciated, they are both Waterbury scovill buttons. The wheat penny is 1909 and the large cent is to far gone to know much other than it’s a early variety because it’s thinner than a matron variety.

Good work! I've found plenty of US coppers but have yet to put my coil over a Canadian copper. Nice pile of buttons too.

Actually you found what is termed as the "King of Varieties" as there can be up to 400 varieties of just the /59 LC
Kind of crazy that a collector could just have one year in a collection, yet have so many different varieties of the same yr.
Here are the examples of the 9/ 5 /T

The Canadian Large Cents always seem to come out of the ground in very nice uncorroded condition compared to U.S. Large Cents. Also the patina on them is usually the dark green like yours. Nice find!
