Draped bust!
Quote this message in a reply
I went to the cellar hole that has produced a variety of colonial coppers. The land owner had done some digging with his tractor, so I decided to give it a try. I only had 15 minutes, and the first signal came after 5 minutes. It was really muddy, and being in sneakers,I couldn't move much. I found a rock to stand on and swung around it, and that's when I got a solid 11:44 on the etrac. It was obviously a copper, but I had no idea what it was until I got home. It's a 1798 Draped Bust large cent, style 1. Here it is after a little toothpick love. Thanks for looking folks!

Thank you gents! The other side has some decent detail but it's crusty. I'm scared to clean that side.
