Default Mexican large cent?

I,ve been out all day hunting with CoffinS .did pretty well both of us got some clad. About three o'clock was quitting time, had adult things to take care of. I went back out about 4 to the park I go to if I got time to kill. To my surprise they had dug a trench all the around the outside of the park about a foot deep. came out with this pretty baby.

Default Nice Going

I was down in Mexico myself, it was a three hour flight south of Tajuana a few months ago. I found the same coins, two 1884's and two 1885's, along with Mexican 5 centavos, and others. I was wondering what someone could buy with an un centavo back in the 1800's? Petty cool finding that oldie here in the U.S.
HH everyone

We have a pretty heavy Hispanic population here in Logansport Indiana since IBP/Tyson came to town 22 years ago, but the question is how long has it been in the ground? Great find Diggerjonny!
