Hi everyone,

I found what seems to be a toasted old copper coin while metal detecting on a local Chesapeake bay beach here on the Eastern Shore of MD. The most I can make of it are some lines and what seems to be an "EOR' word fragment; this thing is worn down to a disc. In addition to pictures of the coin, I'm including three drawings; one of the possible "obverse" with the letters, and two different interpretations of the reverse. If anyone has any ideas on what this might be, let me know!

Happy hunting, Kyle

It is 1 1/16" in diameter and it's very hard to tell because of how thin the coin is but it might have a reeded edge.

Don't mean to be cynical but you cant imagine there to be something on nothing.
Pry a toasted King George but who knows.
