Somewhere I have a colonial penny. About the size of a half dollar, solid copper. If memory serves it is dated 1746. Now the question is where did I put it? Got a bunch of Morgan silver dollars too.

Gunny, that goes all the way to when we were ... Brits! :o
I'd sure love to find something like that with my metal detector some day.

About 35 years ago a friend of the family gave me a whole basket full of change after her husband passed and that penny was in it. Was a whole smattering of coins, silver stuff, foreign coins too.
