Some of you may recall a little while back I posted about an unknown copper coin... While no definite answer was given, I think the generally accepted idea was that it was a flattened penny. Anyway, I happened to notice something today -- I know, I know, you may be saying that I'm seeing something that is not there becuase I want to see something there -- but I think I can see the letter "E" and part of another letter next to it (that looks like a "T", but that I'm not positive about. And I don't know what word on a coin would have "ET" in that order.) I thought, maybe it was part of "United States or America" or "E Pluribus Unum" on a penny... but the font looks like a serif typeface, the lincoln cent uses a sans serif typeface. The Indian Head penny uses a serif typeface but this letter E is smaller that on an Indian Head. Having said that, does any one have any ideas? I'm almost positive that it is indeed a letter E (it looks better in life as opposed to the photo) but it might not be which I guess will keep me thinking it's flattened penny.
The coin is slightly larger than a nickel but slightly smaller than a quarter. It's copper and about as thin as a dime (because it looks like it was flattened, but maybe not.) It was found outside a home from the 1800s.
