    Why don't you just come out and SAY in a reply that you're JEALOUS that Don made the banner again. I didn't nominate this one that you dug, because I had some conversations with knowledgeable people about this coin, and it is overblown and too built up as rarer than it actually is.

    I did, however, nominate Don's "scruffy" Draped.

    The Finds Banner is not the only thing in life.



    Have a Nice Day.

    You should be worrying about where you are going to hunt in developed LA.

    Who cares about the banner, right? I DON'T!!! Zeus and I have had conversations about the banner, and we both agreed that, when we dig rare relics, we hope they don't make it.
    Terrific coin, no matter what.

    The way I look at it, every time I post something here it's a banner find...for me! Not everyone here is tuned to every significant or extraordinary find. Some or the Europeans and Brits make some exceptional finds but they are marginalized because not every one thinks a Saxon piece (or something like that) is anything great. The converse is a lot true in reverse when someone here finds a dirty old pipe that just happens to be a significant relic from a tribe in the Americas. It's tough to have a point of reference for everything posted here.

    The most important thing for any one posting anything here is that they found something and recovered it for the rest of us to appreciate it in our own way. I'll never snub any one posting anything here, be it the most important find ever or the most trivial because we all like to think our finds are the best, because we found them!

    There's a massive amount of knowledge here and I try to drink it all in, despite the fact I may never hit the banner. It's the knowledge that's the best part of finding the stuff!

    Keep on hunting. Remember, if you post it, it's a banner find!

    No harm was done to the copper by rubbing it. We have dug close to 200 coppers in 3 years and have experience with this stuff. Now silver is a different story.

    Sorry cant agree with you on that, but still a nice coin. If you are taking this angle because its already pitted and corroded and whats a few more scratches, I understand. But trust me, those scratches do make a huge difference if and when you decide to sell.

    You wouldn't want to watch me clean some of mine... because once they soak for a while in hydrogen peroxide I often rub them using the corrosion that is coming off as a grit to help better clean.

    If I dug an early copper that for some reason came out looking like a high grade non dug, I would not rub it, but I have never one of those. There is no ill effect by rubbing the loose dirt off because dug coppers have far more issues. If and how to clean is much more important.

    I agree with IP ....actually seen a coin bring in more money because of the good job cleaning it... every coin/situation is different
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.
