I am going to find out which Park Tom hunts, fly out and seed it with coppers.

Nice..looks like a plain 4 stemless wreath..in excellent condition for restoration.. my guess is about vg-8 to F12 details grade environmentally damaged if properly restored..cuz now you have to do something or it will deteriorate.. consider professional restoration and grading..it just makes the cut..but it makes it.. congratulations

Seems when I find one of those, they look like they’ve been in the ground for 200 years. Anyone else? Lost last week or two ! Congrats a lot.

A fantastic find Mark. Congrats on a beautiful hard to find Half Cent. When I get to be 215 years old I hope I can be in that condition. But I doubt it. Trapper

Congrats Bronco, those are scarce. I have found only one, 1808. Yours is in much better shape than mine though.
