My New Oldest Coin Rescue – By Three Years

I’ve been enjoying the soft ground and milder temps to get out and do some hunting.  At one 1820’s house I got a solid 12-45 on the E-trac near an old tree stump.  Underground, it was almost solid rotten wood – but the signal was pure and consistent.  With only a 20 second dig time, I recovered my oldest coin ever.  A 1835 Large Cent.  Beats my 1838 cent!

Andrew Jackson was president when this coin was minted. This was as it looked out of the ground with a bit of water.
