We are still looking for an 1814 coin found at anytime by a forum member. For new members, this post was started by Meggie back in 2010. The countdown must be in order by years. Once an 1814 has been listed the next must be a '13.

If tokens are ok this fits the bill



If not I'm sure I have an 1813 coin here somewhere,  we may be into the 1780's before I find where I put it though!
