    found a half cent

    I havent posted in several years. With my elderly 2011 camo F75 ltd (upgraded), found this in Sept, my first half cent (yes in rough shape) Found at the site of an old residence built in 1816, now slowly being restored. We can see a 4 in the position of the last number, so we are thinking 1804...

    Forgotten picnic ground coins

    Probably took 10 hours and several days to snag these at a well hunted picnic grounds in the woods. The lucky thing was the three IHs were all in one hole. (1888, 1893,1903). The nickels, a V and a Buffalo, were both no dates. The dimes 1936 and 1917s. The Ugly Knife as i call it, is well...

    idea on origin of this imagery?

    Found this, posted it on Today Finds, any experts out there on such imagery, or do you think it adorned a piece of furniture or something. What i dont get is the round projections under the chin, are they curls, a collar, ?

I wonder if those kind of...
