Cherry picking in a cherry orchard? Nicely done.

Superb!

Just curious, for every gem like this one, how many extremely low grade/cull examples do you typically find?

that's a good question. Normaly in a year +/- 600 coins. mostly Dutch copper "duiten". I believe these kind of coins were also used in early colonial America. Sometimes Roman imperial coins & fragments of medieval & later coins.
