While hiking with friends my daughter found a small box lodged in a hole in a cave wall...
Inside the box there was a small coin that looks quite old.
I took a picture of it with my phone but the quality is pretty bad...
I'm hoping that somewhere in the hive collective - there are some Coin Collectors or Numismatics that could identify it.
Attached is the link to the picture
