Interesting coin. I like the pearl border. However, comparing with this coin, that border is the missing element. The rest looks much like your coin.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I'm working on one that looks very similar but is copper or bronze.  I'll post if/when we get it cleaned (it's pretty crusty :-)

It's just the light, Greg. A dam is a copper coin. Yours is likely to be copper. Do post, please.
