This coin (front in cover photo, back below) was found on East Tinmouth Road.  It is a 1760 King George Hibernia, Ireland coin. Based on it generating metal detector readings in the 50's rather than 77 - 80 as is typical, it may be a counterfeit that used a cheaper quality copper in its manufacture.
