@hid, seems like a better place to post this would be over on the us classic and colonials subforum so I'm going to move your thread there.

Looks like a 1787 Connecticut copper with mailed bust left. Yours appears to have multiple strikes in both obverse and reverse. These misstruck coins are scarce but I have seen many examples for sale recently. The coins surfaces also appear to be extensively corroded.

It's a 1787 Draped Bust left, the obverse is one of the 36 or 37 family of obverse varieties. Can't really tell exactly which variety as some of the details are missing due to the double strike. Definitely an interesting coin. If you are wondering about value, that is not so easy. The average Connecticut copper collector, I am one, may or may not be interested in error coins. Value on a coin like this is really determined by how many people want it and what they are willing to pay in an auction setting.

Was this a dug (detector find) coin / ground recovery?

Really nice coin to see regardless, even more so if you found it that way!

CT (and other colonial) collectors are often collecting by variety, so strangely enough, oddities like double/triple OC strikes, brockages, overstrikes, etc. can either be very desirable or not of much interest, depending on who's looking and what their collecting goals are. If you were working on something insanely difficult like obtaining as many different Miller varieties as you could get your hands on, this coin would not be a good fit, but if you collect errors and varieties on colonials or early copper in general, this would be right up your alley.

I agree with lcutler that the value would be derived based on where it was being sold and who was in attendance/knew about the sale.

Thanks everyone for the info so far. Yes, I dug this token here in Niagara, Canada. Only 5 coins/tokens came from this site, and all were 1780-1800 in date so far.

It may be possible to at least narrow down the possibilities on the variety with enough time. If I can, I'll try to look closer.
