Draped bust half cent

Junk bin find, I thought it might have been an ancient until I looked closer! Although I am not sure if it's a draped bust or older style, it's pretty corroded, but still, for $0.25, I am NOT complaining!

I know the photos kinda suck, but it's a US half cent, appears to be a draped bust, but possibly an older variety, hard to tell.

 

Also, it was a 0.25 bin find, and I didn't clean it, although at the stage it's in, I may hit it with some jewelers steel wool and try and force more detail out. It's the same method with old junk colonial half pennies to let you actually see the detail under all that corrosion and grime. Normally though I would tell anyone, just as Dprice, to NEVER clean a coin, it will completely devalue it. This coin on the otherhand is already essentially worthless, so I have no problems doing so. Lol.
