    Some other recent coins

    Hi all,

    Here's a few other coins that have graced my coil over the past 3 weeks. The Matron is a common N-3 variety, as is the Machin's Mills half penny (V23-88A), but I'm happy to add them into my collection as both are in sharp condition for dug coins. The Jersey and Connecticut came from an early cabin site which is just a subtle mound in a hayfield now. Signals were just whispers at 10", and they're in rough shape, but no bother. Also wish the 1/2 and 1 Reale were in better shape - but what more can you ask of cornfield coins. Thanks for looking.

    John, all those coins look awesome to me! Such an odd-looking portrait on that 1788 though. Looks more like Paul Revere than KGIII! The 1832 largie looks better than most yard largies! Well found! Congrats and happy digging, Dave.
