    What an awesome coin! I've never seen on before. That's what we love about metal detecting! You never know what's going to be in the next hole.

    Here are some images of the coin that I took from your video:

    Oldest coin: 1699 William III halfpenny
    Purdiest coin: 1832 Capped Bust quarter

    I watched the video last night. That Cloak Clasp is an awesome relic! Congrats on the coin! I love the style on those old ones. They just look "old."
