    1908IH, in a park I used to play in as a kid, right by a stone stairway into the woods.

    Must have passed that coin dozens of times 50 years ago; and it just waited there patiently for me to rescue it in 2006.

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."
