    1934 quarter found while panning.

    Sheís rough but cool as all get out. Anyone know anything about old quarters?

    Worth more than the gold I usually find. Lol

    Panning for silver quarters - nice! Look closely at the TR of trust to left of bust for evidence of the rare and valuable 1934 double die. The 34 - D is worth a small premium.

    Yeah, sure, if you would give us an idea of the reverse too...we can't grade it but you might get idea of the value, by surfing the internet.
    Retail for as-is might be low, but rarities are different. Whatever the spot value of silver, in weight, will be your determiner, huh?
    Great Find!

    Need to get some polish. This is the best I could do with jewelry cleaner. Pretty slick.

    Never know what you'll find panning, I've found everything from European pottery & stoneware to a clear quartz crystal Palmer arrowhead & Grey flint Point. Just always keep your eyes and thoughts open.

    Don't polish it leave as is until you find out if it has any value more than just silver melt value, polishing it will scratch it up, the jewelry cleaner you used got it cleaned enough, anymore could take away from value if it does have error value.

    I live in and pan in streams that are documented to have had tons of Indian activity and settlements, yet I have never found an arrow head. It’s nuts. I grew up in the woods and rivers, I still spend most of my free time in rivers and streams. I really don’t understand how I haven’t stumbled along anything. Thousands of classifiers of material and no artifacts.

    Lots of barbed wire, glass and other genera bs.

    Kinda baffling really.

    Silver find! Good job! It's worth about $4.35 in scrap silver!

    Sounds like you're in a really good area for old coins! I would totally recommend getting an Equinox 800 if you like finding old Silver. Fun detector to use.

    Never mind not finding that stuff, keep your eyes peeled for unusually-chipped stones, ones that even the mechanical action of water and other stuff can't replicate.
    Man-made stuff..., under control.
    Look real hard at the artifacts that are commonly discovered/recovered in your area, then you should know what to expect.
    The rock material that is been used, find it....!
    Good luck, and happy hunting...!

    This aggressive cleaning will remove any numismatic value from the coin. Be sure it is not a double die or even a D mint before you resort to such harsh cleaning.

    My father used this technique to clean my coin collection when I was young and managed to destroy the coins I had put together - a complete set of Franklin halves in EF-AU, all the Washington quarters except for the 32-d and s. and all the Roosevelt dimes. I know he meant well, but that harsh cleaning destroyed my collection and I could not bear to look at them in that state. I continued to cull silver coins from circulation, but put them in jars, not albums, and hid them. I slowly spent the cleaned coins until their scrap value exceeded their face value and sold them all, unable to enjoy them.

    The coin in question would probably not ever be submitted to a grading service - with the possible exception if it was a rare '34 double die. But if submitted, every single grading service would return it with not only a "cleaned" description, but a "harshly cleaned" description - which is used for submitted coins that have undergone harsh treatments such as sandpaper, scour pads, steel wool (among others), buffing, and yes, thick baking soda paste. Most simple dips do not receive the "harshly cleaned" label.

    The destruction is not of the physical coin itself but of its numismatic value and natural appearance.
