Hello - I was out detecting a field that I've had really good luck with (found many coppers including a Fugio) and I came across this coin. Can anyone give me any details on it? I know there are a handful of varieties. It has no writing that I can see along the edge as well.

My best guess is it's this one

https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...edge-bn/1380

Based on visual grading from other examples I think it could be around 4-5?

Thoughts? I'm just excited for this coin and would love any additional details about it. Thanks in advance!

Extremely cool find. There are plenty of early cent experts on here that can comment on various aspects of the coin, possible conservation, and any red flags, but looking at photograde, I think you are grading accurately.

Very nice!

!795 Liberty Cap Cent. From what I can see it is a variety S-76a or S-76b.

The difference is the thickness of the planchet. If you can see lettering around the edge you have a thick planchet S-76a which is quite rare. If you don't see
any lettering (thin planchet) then you have a S-76b. S-76b is the 1795 variety most often found.

I did not see writing along the edge but maybe it's worn away? (doubt it but it did come out of the ground) is there anything else that could differentiate the A and the B such as weight?

I read the A is 13.48 Grams B is 10.89 Grams I'm going to weigh it when I'm home to see if its near either of those numbers. I'll report back.

any idea value? I dont plan on selling it but i'd love to know what I have. Again going off visual examples of and the website I posted above my guess is 400-500 range if it falls within the 4-5 grade?

thanks for the information keep it coming!! love learning about this stuff.

Even on super low grade examples the edge lettering is still visible, so if you don't see it it doesn't have it.

Seems like the cent has pretty good details on it - may consider getting it conserved.

Don't put that metal detector away yet, I'm on my way over!

In all seriousness, WOWZA!! That's incredible! What a fantastic find! I agree, we'd love to see more pictures of other finds, but as Jimmy says, one per thread. I certainly don't mind seeing several topics of this nature, even if they are all from one person!

with Germanicvs most likely a Sheldon S-76 a or b. As to value? I think you are on the money, if it's not too porous from being buried. A lightly corrosion VG8 would go for at least $1200.00 see Chris McCawleys current VG8 Details example:

https://www.earlycents.com/?product...cent-coin-1c

Tom Deck has one closer to your example listed for $350.00

Obviously a super clean example from Tom, that one wasn't out of the ground!

I'd love to see how your coin "cleans up" in conservation efforts.

Looking forward to seeing some of your other finds, especially the Fugio.

im considering getting it graded, I know a lot of people are against it because its a waste of money but in my mind, I think it's worth it. I've never done it and id love to see something I found be professionally graded and I'm willing to spend a little to learn and see the process.

with that being said - assuming it's not too much $$$$ who would you go through and do they typically offer cleaning services too? Like many people, I've killed coins before trying to get details out. I've done little to nothing to this one and might keep it that way haha thoughts?

ill post some other finds today! thanks all
