Thread: My first King George II copper!

  1. #1

    Cool My first King George II copper!

    It's been ages since I've posted a find...partly cause I haven't had a good find in a while and partly cause I'm lazy.

    Anyway, I got out on Monday and braved a bit of rain from Tropical Storm Nate that swept through. It wasn't too bad, just a constant drizzle.

    Just before calling it quits I hit a nice shallow signal. I thought it would be a quarter and that's what I thought it was when it popped out. Only an inch deep.

    This is my first pre-colonial coin. I cleaned it up as best I could. I think it's a 1734 but can't be sure. Either way I'm pretty happy.

    Thanks for looking and happy hunting out there!

    Congrats on the "young head " variety George II , your 1734 assessment would fit perfectly in the 1727 to 1739 timeline when this variety was minted . It always seems the first one is the hardest to find I bet more will follow more often now !
