Default Help ID my copper please

Ok, it's toasty but I'd love to know what this copper is. It was found today at a 1818 house. The back is toast and smooth, the bust is the only thing identifiable. Was thinking it was a KG3 bust the profile doesn't look right. Any ideas anybody ?

It looks like a King George III. The one Matmit posted is a newer variety. There are also tons of circulating counterfeits that don't exactly match a genuine piece. They probably actually outnumber the genuine coins.

yep.. First coin 1770-1775 many counterfeits, 2nd coin 1806 or 1807, very few counterfeits.

Most likely a KG III as has been said, although my other guess was a France Louis XV - if you look right in front of the forehead/bridge of the nose on yours you will see what looks like II, which I'm guessing is actually 'III" and the third is worn down, or outside chance its a 'D' for the Louis, hard to say from the photo - either way, most likely a 1770 era copper... Nice!
