    All of my Silver and jewelry finds for the 2012 season

    Well this is all my sterling, and silver coins for the year. I did not beat last year or even come close to it, but I feel it was a good season.

    I ended up with 7 seated coins, 6 dimes and one 1854 seated half dime, my first one in 5 yrs of detecting, so that is a real highlight for my 2012 season. Oldest seated was 1838 found in a farm field. I got some nice barbers, several SLQ's including a semi key 1920-D and a blazing 1929.

    Got 4 halves for the year, 3 walkers and one barber, as for other dimes, I got almost twice the mercs as I got rosies which is a good thing. I got 12 sterling rings, 3 sterling thimbles, sterling pocket knife, The large indian ring is my favorite jewelry find this year. Hope I didn't go overboard on pictures, and hope you enjoy viewing them!!!!

    Barb,

    The silver ring should be cleaned using fresh lemon juice not peroxide.....peroxide is used primarily for copper coins, etc....

    That 2 Franc coin looks like someone started to hammer it into a ring. Bet they lost it in the process, and then you came along.

    True_Metal,

    Good eye on the 2 franc coin in the process of being turned into a ring.....I remember a buddy back in the 1960's used to make silver rings from 25 cent silver coins by continuously hitting it with a soup spoon and turning the coin around.

    He'd eventually drill out the center and use a file or rasp to smooth out the inside.....to a lot of patience but he ended up with some pretty nice rings for his troubles......and yeah I'm as old as dirt....lol...

    Regards + HH

    That is some haul! If I managed to find that much in a lifetime, I'd be very happy indeed. I really enjoy seeing the finds and you really have an eyeful!
