    Im not going to touch/rub but I did run some water over it to get some the dirt off. The rev came out great, nice patina too but obv is still like it is. Trust me I be heading back to that location soon.

    It's not going to be worth much covered in dirt though. Even heavily cleaned, a key date coin like that will fetch $. As long as you're smart about getting the dirt off it shouldn't degrade the coin much.

    That should get much better.

    Peroxide soak with light brushing. Once done lay flat to dry (no water) to keep the patina, or rinse with soap to wash it away. It would be pure insanity to leave that coin as is.

    Please DO NOT clean it. I've been a collector for 40+ years. Trust me most collectors will not buy a coin that has been cleaned.

    If you WANT to RUIN the coin Peroxide soak with light brushing will do it.

    You should only rinse off the dirt. If you do more than that you WILL decrease the value.

    If you want to get more of the dirt off soak in olive oil, this will take time... months possibly.

    Most grading services will grade it as damage, because it is. Any copper coin dug up is.
    The surface of ths coin is everything to a collector.

    It is a very important coin and still has good value to a collector....
    but it needs handled by an exprienced person to remove the dirt and not harm the value.

    Please everyone if you find a good coin, DO NOT clean it. The last thing a collector want to see is a coin ruined due to cleaning.

    Congrates... Dirt diggin for 40 years and 500+ indians, still looking for a '77.

    Well if it's only dirt of course you only need water, that's just common sense.

    As for the peroxide ruining the coin or hurting the value.... yes, that was certainly the case for the copper I dug that was worth maybe $500 to someone when dug (because there was almost no detail showing) but after cleaning with peroxide I sold it for 5k. I'll leave my comments at that, although I probably could say a lot more.

    If its gotta be cleaned, let a pro do it and grade it for ya. That's possibly a $1,000+ coin right there. I absolutely vote Banner for these finds including the Injun...Great job and big congrats as well. jgas
