As my season nears an end due to cold weather here in Wisconsin, today I bundled up and got out, found my first 2 cent coin, so happy with it. Sometimes over winter I miss metal detecting so much I feel like digging up my basement floor and start searching. Thanks to this website I can live thru you lucky folks that get to search year round.

Nice coin! Not as common a date to find either. You must have some mild soil and no fertilizer.

Thanks for the replies, went back to the site today and found another 1865 2 cent this time. Not as nice condition, strange they were only about 50 feet apart, wonder what causes condition changes? I feel lucky to find these coins in western Wisconsin. Also found this button says ____bury on the back. Is this military? Thanks for any info.

Awesome finds, demano. I’ve never found a two-cent coin! But I’m gonna keep looking.

Great job knocking the 2-center off the bucket list! Then to find another right after- awesome, especially since neither was the common 1864. Your first is a date we typically don't see posted (been at this 31+ years and found 22 of them, never an 1868!), and in amazing shape too- Congrats!
