    This does not Happen in an on the Spot situation.
    That dirt looks like it's been there for Years.

    I Almost always doubt Insitu Pics. But That is because I grab all and Inspect.
    I won't say I Won't take a Real Insutu one day.
    but I would have to be very Calm & ave the energy to walk to the car, Get my Camera & walk back.

    Suggests to me it was Replanted .

    probably quickly when he got exited at what it was .

    in other words I Believe He Dug it & Wanted to make the pic a Bit Dramatic so he put the Hunk
    of dirt with the coin back in.

    cool Find !
    Trust the Guy until He proves beyond a Shadow of a Doubt he shouldn't be trusted.
    As Jeff said...... Accept all finds/posts as real unless you can prove beyond a doubt that it is a fake. This would surely be a dull website if no one posted that fantastic find because they feared someone would question it. TTC

    Look at these IH pennies and Buffalo nickels - I had land hunters say I cleaned them - I did not
    they were found in salt water - all had a thin coating of black on them and with a wipe of my thumb - this is how they came out
    the silver in these areas will come out grey - some may have little bits of shell or sand stuck to them - some of these were found in CT. the others in Ma.
    a mile down the road from some of these finds - sil.quarter is caked heavily in black and 10k gold ring came out copper colored (copper is one of the alloys used in some 10k jewelry) - have found 10k rings with green on them because of copper in them
    so you never know what different conditions will do to a find ---
    at old parks and schools - I would look for mossy areas - moss usually grows in good
    loam - coins would almost always come out like new when found under it - the soil was usually nice and black - silver would come out clean and copper would almost never turn green ---then I had another school where silver would come out black and pennies and old nickels would come out a dark pink color - think there were chemicals in the soil
    Ive been in the hobby since 1975 - and seen coins come out in all different colors

    Personally I find so much wrong here with the pic.
    The coin is Shiny! Under the ground for 180 years? Normally they are various shades of green. There is no sign of digging tools. It appears to have had water poured on it? The fine roots dont make sense.
    Am I bieng unfair?
    Opinions welcome. Fake or not?
    After recieving this I doubt all of this persons "finds".
    But I have an open mind and am happy to be proven wrong.
    Very well could be a Fake find along with some others I have seen. But fake news worries me more.

    I dont let it bother me. There is a guy on a Facebook page that constantly posts his finds which have on average 5-10 silvers but if you look through the pictures, the same coins show up multiple times. If someone has to post fake finds to make them feel accomplished, more power to them.

    So what is your style? Taking other peoples pics sent to you in private...then posting them publicly so you can trounce their ethics? Without the slightest bit of evidence?

    If you are going to accuse this guy of fraudulent activity....MAN UP and send him a link to this topic so he can at least defend himself. I would sure as hell like to face my accuser if I was this guy.

    Dragging this guy through the mud without even the SLIGHTEST bit of proof....AND without letting him defend himself? Seems like the credibility issue lies elsewhere.

    Doesn't really bother me. Looks to be a British cartwheel penny, not the rarest thing out there. I generally do not take a camera in the field with me. Don't want to ruin the camera getting dirt in it. When I found my gold guinea a few years ago, first thing I did was kick it. Yes, you got that right. Was expecting it to blow away in the wind as I though it was a gold colored top to a kid's drink jug. It didn't kick right. I picked it up (was on top of a sand beach), and after nearly having an OMG fit, set it first on the top of the machine that dug it and took a picture and then set it back on the sand to take its picture. Didn't change the reality I dug a gold coin! On TOP of the ground (sand).

    To me, the coin looks a bit lifted but that is it. Looks like it could be a legitimate find. You should discuss your thoughts with the gentleman that sent you the pic.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    There have been a few busted here posting illegitimate finds. They're no longer here on TNet.

    I tend to believe everyone posting their finds here as legitimate. I don't question finds, but there's some serious detectives debunking fakes! I don't find enough keepers to ever post something anyone would question!
