Frank,
  That is a very nice pick-up.

A colonial American coin is actually one dated prior to 1776.

There's a debate on http://coinchat.org/forums/index.php regarding colonial American coins.

American coinage between 1776 & 1789 was issued by both the States,like this New Jersey 1 Cent,& under Congressional authority,such as the Nova Constellatio & Fugio 1 Cent coins.

Vermont was actually an independent republic from 1776 until 1791.Vermont also had its own coins as well.
