My first half cent ... maybe. Clean-up will tell.thinking

Been methodically going through an old park thats pretty hunted out. Mostly with my Tejon but if weather is dodgy I'll take my Multi Kruzer or Apex. Today I was working a lower section along some wooded edges and snagged my first half cent. I carefully pick off some the dirt to see the date 1884. Back is pretty rough but not surprised as most the coppers and flying eagles I have got there been in rough shape. Other coins are some clad, and a 48 wheatie, 2 piece button but it is probably not that old as the back has a square thread post.

Still running my primary disc really low, just off the iron mark with sensitivity up as high as I can which seems to really help pick targets out of all the iron but downside is I get nice hits on deep coal.
