    1833 Bust 1/2dime (my 1st bust coin), 1732 Russian Anna coin (real/fake?), misc....

    Here are my finds for the last 4-5 weeks. I cannot believe I actually found my 1st bust coin, an 1833 half dime, found near a large stream. The 1732 Anna Russian coin was found in the woods, not sure if it is authentic, it weights 26.7 grams and I would say it is made of silver, any opinions on it? I found the “Conrad’s” Boston Mass. key chain thing on line it is from a dept store / early 1900s. I’ve found single smashed pieces of lamps before in the past, so it was neat to find the assembly of one, it was found in a stream also. Thanks for looking & HH! TommNJ

    That's a great old large silver! Must have been quite a surprise. If that's fake I'll eat it.

    Thanks jewelerguy! Yeah I loved pulling that bust out of the ground (in clay), as far as the Russian coin I'm really hoping it's the real deal but being kind of a doubting Thomas just being prepared in case it is fake but it seems like silver. Here is a edge shot which I fotgot, still trying to get use to the changes.

    Thanks again TommNJ

    If you want to now about Russian coins the e mail Sergei at treasurereports@yahoo.com . He is a Russian that lives in NY state and has a great blog site called "The Truth about Metal Detecting". He would know strait away about the coin.

    PS; Great finds by the way.
