One Cent…

One Cent, and no not the rapper… looks like the American’s are getting in on the act of finding old coins, i have found some old American coins, with most of the coins beyond saving, but i would definitely like to find this one, as the USA opened their first mint in 1792, this little beauty dated 1798 might have only been six years old when it was lost…

Shane Houston, of Charlotte, North Carolina, was on a metal-detecting trip with a friend in Maine when he discovered this historic coin from 1798
Bangor Daily News stated that the coin was designed by Robert Scot at the Philadelphia mint
