Default Draped bust copper

Hey everyone, got out for 2 hours this weekend, due to rain. This is the highlight, she's toasty but a nice toasty IMO. Found in the local sandbox I think the weather might finally be turning pretty soon, so that always seems to make the hunting better. As always thanks for looking and happy hunting!

The East coast is a very big sandbox Jeff. I think there will be a lot more goodies out there for you. Trapper

Does anyone have an idea why that coin seems worn along one edge, with one or two notches taken out?

I think that coin is still gorgeous even if it is a bit toasty. Congrats!

Nice recovery. I think she has found a good home to clean up and rest for her final days.

Arthur,it’s likely the result of boredom and the coin getting “worked”, or it was actually being used for a purpose. It’s hard to say sometimes what the heck happened. Any ideas on your end?
