I think I found a steel cent


Well-known member
I was out yesterday with my F19 and this came out of the hole with another coin, I thought at first it was a old washer but I started to wonder because of its size if it could actually be a steel cent so I chipped away at it and it indeed could be an old steel cent. Here are the pics I took so you can judge for yourself if that is what it is. It has a VDI of 10-11 on the F19. The first 2 pics are of it as it came out of the ground, the last 3 pics are of it compared to a wheat cent.
