I think this is it
I went out into the woods Saturday to the same spot I found my 1837 token. I was hoping for silver but no luck there but did find an interesting coin. I wasn't sure what it was when I found it and it looked really worn. I cleaned it when I got home and at first I thought it was a British coin. But after some research on line I find it to be an Irish coin - I think a half penny by the pictures and the information on the coin. I not sure how long these coins were made - I'm hoping just in the 1700's. Would have love to have a date but I'll have to settle for what it is. I found a picture that looks like what I had found.
