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."
