American Large Cent Coin 1793-1857

The American Large Cent Coin is from 1793 to 1857. Even the low quality ones are worth a t least $19.00, and depending on the date and quality it can go up to $17,000 (1793 chain) plus. The reason its called a large cent is its closer to a quarter in size, unlike the pennies made since.
there are many rare dates to look for and most of the early dates are worth a lot more.

Coins from the 1800's found Metal Detecting

This video displays coins found with either a Garrett Groundhog or Garrett GTi 2500 Metal Detector, in Brunswick, Georgia. It definitely makes me want to go out and buy a metal detector. There is a half dime in it that stats 1848, which I had no idea existed, so my next post I'm going to research it and post about it.

World's Oldest Coin

The 1/6 Stater coin is about 2,700 years old. This old coin was only stamped on the one side. Originating out of Lydia, known as part of Western Turkey, this could be the oldest coin found to date. It's in the main exhibit in the Department of Coins and Medals of the British Museum. This coin was made with electrum, an alloy of gold and silver. It is believed to be from the dynasty of the Lydian king, the roaring lion Alyattes (about 610 - 560 BC) or perhaps his predecessor Sadyattes could be behind the royal blood line.
As much as I looked for the price of something like this, nothing has turned up, I'm guessing it could be priceless.
