Default 1626 Frisia Duit

Found this 1626 (Dutch) Frisia Duit today in a park in Holland. It's my oldest coin by 202 years! It's copper and in terrible shape, but it was a great feeling to find and ID. Also found some early 1900s Dutch Cents--much better shape, but not nearly as fun to find. The Duit with the white background is something I found online, for reference.

How cool is that? Now you have to get into the 1500's! Really cool the date was preserved like that too!
