Some Finds

Here are some finds from the weekend.

The bust on the large cent seems to closely align with the online reference that I included. I can make out "96" in the last two digits, so it is probably a 1796. I have found a number of large coppers punched with a hole to carry on a string when pockets were not the norm. I can't figure out what purpose it served to punch numbers into the face of the coin. I have found a few with letters or numbers like this one. Does anyone know why they did this?

The pin says "Forest Guide" "PA dept of forests and trees."

The Wheat Cents range from 1914-1956.

The Indian Head Penny is 1898.

Looks like a lot of fun. You obviously know what you’re doing.
