old coin

about 20 years ago I found an old copper coin while looking for arrowheads
decided to try to clean it a couple days ago
one side says one cent other side a rough face and date 1798
oldest coin ever found but copper coins in this area don't weather very well in our soil

That's cool, check the condition, could be valuable even in rough shape. This is probably what you have.
