    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! Today's hunt yields a silver ( I think) coin and misc.

    Hi

    Just can't resist getting out to the beach with the fabulous weather we've been experiencing here in CT. I hope the sun and fair temps continue.

    Detected another old beach which I haven't been to in quite some time. Hunted dry and wet sand.

    Encrusted coin gave off a strong high sound...I'm cleaning it at this time to see what it is..will post cleaned pics later.

    Not much else to "write home about", but it sure was fun out there

    Hank and I wish everyone a Happy, Prosperous New Year!

    Here's some pics

    Thanks for looking

    Lorraine


    Addendum to above post: coin is beginning to look like a " Barber " dime. I can see "United States ...

    instead of "Liberty " on the obverse.


    Addendum to the addendum above:

    Here is a pic of the coin after electrolysis: another victim of the salty beach sand conditions

    Great job cleaning up that mystery coin Lorraine.
    I was surprised you were able to pull a date off
    it because it was so encrusted. Well done. HH

    It's amazing just how much treasure people loose and we manage to find.

    Great Lorraine on your first silver of 2012. May many more come with lots of gold in your scoop too! Good digs!
