Thread: 300 Year Old Coin!

  1. #1

    300 Year Old Coin!

    Hey!
    I've been working an AM site and a PM site...both are new to me and have lots of property. My AM site gave up the dateless LC and many un-pictured relics like dandies, D buckles, rosettes, etc
    The PM site gave up the 1722 Hibernia, 1838 LC and my second 1800s NYC police button. My first I found a few years ago, about 3 miles away! Look at the amount of string still attached to the shank!
    Thanks, Drew

    Fly back to Illinois on July 14th. The movers came today and packed all of our stuff up and took it away. They didn't even blink twice at all the carefully sealed little boxes that were labeled as books, pictures, or office supplies!

    WTG Drew you've got some great sites there! On the NYPD Button does it say if it's the Municipal or Metropolitan PD?

    Thanks Noah, Darryl, and Roger!
    I wonder if we'll have to pay full price when Dave opens his museum, Noah.
    I don't know much about that button, Roger. Maybe someone will chime in. Thanks!

    Those are amazing finds. I think I could put my to oldest coins together and I am not sure I make it to 300 years. Great history. Good luck on future hunts there. WD

    Thanks, WD, us retired members have to stick together

    George, Don just found a Franklin and I mentioned the only one I "found." Thanks again!!!!

    Thanks, Jared, I wish our dirt was as kind to the coins as yours.

    Such a distinctive profile, Jeff...one of my favorite busts. I never dug a Rosa in good condition. Hope you're well!
