Default 1740 kg 2

My oldest coin and first king George the 2nd have Seen other ones dug toasted with no dates or unrecognizable. Sure am glad this one isn't that way. Thanks for looking.

Excellent coin Claddy!

You are fortunate to be able to get a date.

So many of these old coppers are just toast plus they were worn when they hit the soil.

Use care if you plan on doing any further cleaning.
