A surprise 1848 half penny


#1

took some pennys and half pennys out from an olive oil soak and i noticed one coin that did not match the size of the rest turned out to be a first bust young head vicky not had one of these before but like the copper tokens the surface or patina is all but gone never to return,bad thing is i dont know exactly where i found it,i know from experience these old coins can be in a very small area on a big site,when you find one take a lot of time and effort in that area.it could pay dividends.IMG_2073IMG_2074
