I currently only have two in barely recognizable condition that I am hoping to someday upgrade. Seeing as how decent examples match or exceed my yearly coin budget, however, it may be awhile before I manage to do so.

Very nice!

My oldest is 1806, so nothing for me to show.

My only 18th-century US coin is this beaten-up and worn-out 1798 cent!

Great thread idea barryg.

I have no examples to share but sit back hopeful that many CCF folks will come through with some lovely coins to show us - in addition of course to what you have already shared.
Take a look at my other hobby ... http://www.finewoodcrafter.com
Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

If it's copper and prior to 1800, why not?

The title says "US Coppers" which I take as produced by the US Gov't.
Colonials were struck before the US existed.
But you may have a different interpretation.

Here's my keychain/lotto scratch-off 1798 Draped Bust Cent. I bought it like this. I would never damage a coin like this. I have no idea of the type.



The first US coin motto was found on a 1792 half disme and read: "LIB (erty) PAR (ent) OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY"
