    First cut half penny from 1754

    Hi everyone, sorry I haven`t been on here in awhile. I`ve had so much heart breaking losses last year, I`m still in shock. I have started to get back in the field, to clear my head and try to relax. So hear come some good news. I`ve managed to find my oldest copper 1754 George II half penny(it`s been cut and bent so I tumbled it) I also have found a 1925 wheat and a few from the 50s. Also a sterling arrow-heart ring. A 64d quarter and a 46 rosie. I hope this year goes better than the last.
