Went to a park today that was opened recently. It butts up on a farm that dates back to 1701. Found this and a navy? button. Will definitely be going back. Didn’t know these were only minted for 8 years! Couldn’t pull a date off it but happy to have it narrowed down. Other coppers were found this year and are just for size reference.

Whoa I think youre right! If that’s the case, it looks like only 4-5,000 were ever minted that year!
My source indicates that 476,000 were minted.
