Man.. I apologise.. I don't know what coin I first looked up in my 2019 red book..but I'm home now looking at it..it's one of three things..a fake..an original..or a restrike..I'll quote the red book..A restrike 1804 was manufactured from discarded mint dies. An altered 1803 die was used for the obverse and a die of the 1820 cent was used for the reverse. They were struck circa 1860 to satisfy the demand for this rare date. Known as the "restrike", the product actually is a combination of two unrelated dies and cannot be confused with the genuine...further written.."All genuine 1804 cents have a crosslet 4 in date and a large fraction. The 0 in the date is in line with the O in OF on reverse

That's cause you have to turn the dial off of gold coin mode Tom. Then the big coppers will start rolling in... least that's what I try to tell myself.

Always a fun find, way to go! I'm impressed at the condition too, coppers at this time are getting really ratty since they are 200+ years old, kudo's to you!
