Hit a site close to home today that I've hunted for several years now and it very seldom disappoints me, the pin has 2 crossed swords and a cannon on it I am able to make out the date of 1876 on the right side, I'm thinking the left side would have a date of 1776 ! Large cent is in fairly good shape for a field find copper.

Isn't it great when you have a site that continues to produce? That is a really nice Braided Hair LC- Congrats! I agree with The Rebel's suggestion of a Rev war 100 year pin.
