Connecticut Copper (Mutton Head) Cent

I made a quick visit to this old cemetery in Southeastern Pennsylvania and found this Connecticut Copper Cent under a rock along the road. I never metal detect in the Cemetery, near the graves, it's bad karma and besides the metal is too deep 😊.  I can't recognize the date of the coin but they were minted between 1785 and 1788. This  predates the cemetery by 70 years so it must have been dropped by someone traveling along the road that, at the time, was just a dirt path along a creek. Definitely going back for more!
