Here's a second example from the Moneta Museum of a 1797 Cartwheel 2 Pence. This one is pure copper, without the bronzing treatment and was therefore a regular strike. Preservation is very good and the edges are clean except for a rim bruise on the reverse. Five of these, side by side, equals 8 inches and they are exactly 2 ounces of pure copper.
