That's a nice 1806, Dale. So many of these old copper have been beat up by the passage of time...sometimes on purpose.

Thanks
It has a lamination of some sort at 7 o'clock but it still looks good for 214 years old.

Yeah, I see it now. Hard to tell what it is...maybe a small gough or ding. It doesn't distract at all though because of where it is. As a matter of fact I didn't even notice it until you mentioned it.

Looks like something struck the coin and peeled back a bit of copper. Are those two small lines die cracks?

No, just paper lint from the holder.
