    Sunday 6/4 - 2 More Coppers!

    Met up with Frank for another adventure into the woods. Nabbed 2 more coppers both KGIII's. One is 1778 the other is blank. Have a feeling the blank one is a younger version of him, what say you guys?

    quite easy 1770's are more common with counterfeits than the regal British coppers plus they usually hold up better than the real ones and after a while you can tell by the bust lines or types of faces on the bust , 1787 and 88 dates are usually machin mills as well.

    we also have a decent resources pages stickied at the top of the relics forum board that shows a lot of info. congrats again Roger
