    Nice! Well used in it's career. I enjoy that!

    I haven't had this old of a junk box find before. My best was 1790.

    Getting something that's listed in the Colonial section of the Red Book from a junkbox for practically nothing is worth celebrating! I've found a Connecticut copper, a Thick Planchet London Elephant token, a Saint Patrick halfpenny, and an American Plantations token that way. That last turned out to be a counterfeit (not sure if it was contemporary or not), but the rest were all the real McCoy- albeit low grade.

    I have an equally lowly farthing of the same date. :)
