Found them on a farm permission that dates back to the late 1700's. Spent 2 days there, in all found 4 coppers, one was smooth the other 3 were identifiable, and 1 dandy button.

Those are some fantastic finds- especially considering they're farm finds- wouldn't expect as much detail on coppers- Congrats!

I was just as surprised, the soil is pretty dandy, so it preserved these coppers better than usual. I did find another that was smooth, but I think it might be another draped bust
