    A"mystery" coin found at beach this morning.....solved the mystery after electrolysis

    Hi

    Got in a couple of hours while Hank golfed this morning.

    Not much to show for the time I hunted, but I did recover a "bit" of silver.

    Here's some pics of my adventure this morning just before the rain started.


    Thanks for looking

    Lorraine

    Thats is cool! Looks like she and the eagle are jumping out. Your really good with the hunting and electrolysis. That looks like a tough place to hunt.

    Wow Lorraine, that coin has seen better days! Your posts are so good showing the before and after shots. I'd have never guessed a walking liberty was under that crud. Beach shots look great, how I wish I was closer to any beach!

    Keep it up Lorraine, you and all the other posters are my fix until I can get back to a beach!

    Just think of it as a big silver nugget!

    Salt water seems to change a coin's identity at times, I have a clad dime that looks like boat and pig coin. Detecting is good for health too, and priceless.

    still - always nice to find a half - means no one went over that spot and there could be more missed there

    Very cool!!! I too like the before and after pix along with the location shots. Shame you over zapped it ruining its high numismatic value. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!!!!

    Seriously, great job!!!!

    Thank you for your reply, Native Floridian,

    I was sure hoping that it was one of these 1899 Beauties ( see attached pic) that I had found several years ago under the same muddy, salty beach low tide conditions...and would you believe I then returned to that same beach the very next day and found another Barber Liberty dated 1895...also in great condition , which I promptly gave to my brother a coin collector who lives in Florida , in appreciation for his on - going advice and assistance in this terrific hobby.
