Re: Oldest coin I have found so far!

That's cool ! There is the exact one ( 1723 ) on ebay now for $135.00
Just imagine the poor guy that lost that way back when, I am sure it was a big loss at the time.
Most old farmers I know will not go to the field with a wallet or any cash on them, good practice!

Re: Oldest coin I have found so far!

It's always fun to find these old coins. It was neat because my daughter was with me this time and she got pretty excited about finding such an old piece of history. It definitely motivated her to cover a lot of ground that day as we continued detecting!
