Didn't watch the video, but I'll be surprised if someone doesn't claim it. May have been taken in a break-in or some kid getting into dad's coin collection for pop money, and dropped. :laugh: Interesting find regardless.

Well put Smitty. I agree. I find it strange that a street sweeper finds a coin over 200 years old just laying in the grass....
