Today I found something I never dreamed Id ever find! Now, yall keep in mind, Im an arrowhead hunter but a guy gave me an old Garretts freedom3 machine and ive been using it a little lately since the river is up and I dont have anywhere to rock hunt that is fresh so today me and the detector struck out to find something since it was so nice and I found this coin from 1784!!! Also a few other not so great coins, a horse shoe and this copper thing that im not sure what it is. To all you coin guys, did I find a good piece or are they common? The fact that its 230 years old just amazes me and if only it could tell its story of where it came from!!! Thanks for the look and fill me in on any info yall have on it and the copper cover, thats what im calling it.

Very cool!! Surely being that old it can't be that common. Looking forward to hear more about what it is, and its value. Congrats on the cool finds!!!

HAHAHa, I gotta be honest.... I would have been much happier with a Cumberland, heck even a half of one but this caught me off guard!!! Ive just been piddling with this metal detecting thing and to be honest, its not my favorite and cant compare to my arrowheads BUT, Im just amazed that I found something metal with a man-made machine that was produced 230 years ago. I figured a wheat penny here, a Civil War bullet there, No old coin so Ill take it! Ill trade it to ya for that purty fluted point you got though ;\) Holler at me, I got a dandy unhunted spot we can go to.

Bahaha no! Lol I may hit you up being laid off and all I've gotta get caught up on some stuff and may even look for a rock here in the next few days. I figure by Friday I'll have another Cumberland to show you \:\)

Big arrowhead show in Loretto this weekend as well

Common? I'll put it to ya this way. I've been metal detecting since I was around 9 yrs old. I bought my first detector with my own money I worked for. I'll be 32 this yr. I've never found one of those coins.

They are more common up in the new england states...and down in South Carolina. But not common at all in TN.
