How much do you think you could get for this coin at the coin dealers in Cincinnati? I bet it is worth a ton! Those coins are super old and probably as pure as they could make them back then.

My cousin use to be a coin dealer in Cincinnati and he loved his job. He thought that it was so cool that he got to see all these coins from history and just experience it all first hand.
