Did you dig that coin? What an impressive big old copper. Congrats!
no i didn't dig it i was hunting around an old homesite and came across an old rotten log i was getting a strong 99 signal so i got a strong branch and keep breaking away the rotten log till it was in pieces cleared everything away and was still getting a 99 on my at pro..i reached in under the cabin and used my garret carrot to pinpoint it...it was sitting on the ledge of another log. i felt around and out came the coin.needless to say i almost peed my self..lol

That’s a great little story. I guess I meant did you dig and/or find it, versus bought from a dealer or friend. That is a pretty remarkable coin to have found. Congrats again on a huge and interesting coin. You don’t see coppers like that very often, that’s for sure.
