Dear White's,

I was hunting with my XLT at a new house site that runs along Stonewall Jackson Winter camp route. I was hunting a real trashy area with lots of old barbwire, the area runs along an old creek, so I was checking the creek.

When I decided to hit the hill coming up a different way, I came across this Virginia half penny with King George on one side and the Virginia Colonial Shield on the other side.
