Stacks will be putting up two coins found by a couple of people who worked a construction site near the Philadelphia mint. One is a 1798 dollar struck on copper scrap the other a 1793 half cent.

That's pretty cool. Looks to me like someone decided to okay around with some copper bits. I did the same thing with the coins I made, partial impressions on scrap metal, just something to mess around with, lol. I bet the minters got bored. :ninja:
