    No this was found in a park that dates to about 1910 or so. But the area had plenty of activity starting in the early to mid 1800s.

    That really is a special seated! Since we don't ever see coins that old in my region, I was unaware of style with the rays on the reverse. I've dug one seated with arrows at the date, but it was a much later variety. Well done and congrats!
