Yesterday I hiked my butt off. Ended up finding two coppers one toast one not.... Here is the thing... what is the date? I know what I see.... how about you? The obverse is https://www.pcgs.com/coinfacts/coin/1785-ct-1-2p-bust-right-miller-6-2-f-bn/685167....

It appears to be a 1785 Miller 6.2-F.1 die pairing:

Your obverse has the same characteristic die break on the bust and the reverse matches as well. It's listed as an R-3 so scarce. Really nice find!

Fantastic coin 41Digger! All that hiking sure paid off. Hope you rewarded yourself with a cold beer at the end of the day.
Congrats!
