2/19 - PRICE JUST REDUCED 33% - THE BATTLE OF ANTIETAM / MILLER'S CORNFIELD - Old Copper Coin - Probably Pre-Civil War - Found between 1975 and 1979
(ORIGINAL PRICE $16.00) This copper coin measures almost 1 1/8 inches in diameter. There is no detail that I can see left on it, so I am unable to identify what type of coin it is - it is almost certainly pre-Civil War. It was recovered between 1975 and 1979 from Miller's Cornfield at Antietam. At this time, the field where some of the bloodiest fighting of the war occurred was still privately owned. The relic hunter told me a story about being invited into the house of the farmer who owned the property and seeing an incredible variety of artifacts that had been plowed up in the fields. A provenance letter will be included.
