    Silver, IH's, Flying Eagle, LC, wheats. UPDATE: After cleaning pics of Flying E

    I got out again for another all day hunt with my dad and uncle today. It was another great day swingin' the MD. We hit the same spots as in my last post and they are still producing. The first spot,(the big field in back of a school), I found a 1928 buffalo nickel and a 1918 Merc in the same hole. I also found an 1825 LC! It is worn smooth, but I love diggin' those LC's. I too ended up with 3 wheaties. My dad and uncle found some wheaties here. The next spot we went to was the old abandoned park. I found an amazing 1857 flying eagle cent. This coin is in great shape. It is not pitted at all. All I did was rinse it off with water. Any ideas on how to clean it? I'm scared to use peroxide. I also found a 1900 barber dime, 1903 V nickel and 2 IH's(1901, 1905). My dad found a great 1905 Canadian 5 cent and an 1887 IH. My uncle found an 1884 IH. Thanks for looking! Happy hunting!

    WOW - You guys had an AWESOME hunt!!!! I would just soak the Flying Eagle in some water for a few days to loosen the dirt then use a soft toothebrush on it (NOHING ABRASIVE!!!! and just keep it in water for as long as it takes).
    Come check out my MD'ing videos:

    That is a great assortment of coins! I am still waiting on my first flying eagle and yours is one of the best ones I have seen posted. I have found 10 fatty IHP's this year so I am knocking on the door to finding one sooner or later (hopefully sooner). Nice digs!

    Don't forget that the flying eagle has a fair amount of nickel in it, so no chemicals!
    Trust me. I ruined my first one, but I luckily had two back ups.

    Thanks for the replies and advise everyone. I kinda thought I should not use peroxide. I definatlely want to clean this one right. I ruined the only other one I found. This one should clean up very nice if I do it right. Thanks again and keep those coils on the ground!

    That 1857 is in real nice shape. Lots of detail. Peroxide is all I use. As long as it's not heated to an extreme boil the coin should come out nice. Just my opinion. GREAT finds! Hogge
