"In 1971 I was 12 yrs. old bare foot running through sand in my home town,(also colonial)Augusta,Ga.I kicked up a quarter sized,very crusty object.I kept it in my pocket all day.I cleaned it enough to see it was a coin, after research,a 1652 willow tree shilling.My question today is could it have migrated here this far south? You mentioned the pine tree coin was widely circulated in the N.E. colonies. My mother has told me of stories about an old Indian trail/hedge road/wagon road that ran through our property long ago.The coin being authenic or not I don't know,but the story here is true "
