Default Date???1796-1807 Large Cent Bust

Very shocked when I pulled this out of the ground. A bit upset that I scratched it but great find. Don't think I will be able to get a date but based on what I see I know it's somewhere between 1796-1807... Any tips on identifying with no date visible??? For some reason I cannot post more than one pic will post the back in a different post.

Yeah. The date is one for the ages, but still a fantastic find. Congrats on a great oldie!

There are some variations on the reverse that may help for the date, ie: stemless wreath, 1/000 etc. However if the reverse is as bad, you may never know.

Try a thin layer of milk. She's toasty but that's an awesome coin! Congrats!
