    Yep. Managed two 1909-s VDB, but both are horribly corroded. And one 1914-D, that I slashed with my shovel. Still need the 09-s, 31-s, and the 22-p.Click image for larger version.

    Awesome find!
    If you send a coin to PCGS, will they clean it for you? Like this coin, it should be professionally cleaned before grading. Wouldn't it be best to let the graders clean it?

    Two s VDB's!? That's awesome, I would love to find one of those! Here's a couple pics of the '14 d that I found a couple months ago, pretty crusty.Click image for larger version.

    do NOT use peroxide on this coin!!! It will make it an ugly dark drown. And yes ANACS will grade it with details. And it will say enviromental damage from being in the ground, but trust me, someone will buy it, that is if your selling! On the good date wheats and indians, I have dug I use ONLY warm water and soap. Then dry well and use a toothpick to get the remaining loose dirt off. A collector is not gonna want it with all the dirt on the back. CONGRATS on a fine look 22

    Thank you! I have no intentions of using peroxide on this one. I did on the 14d but that was only because it was super crusty, probably still a mistake.
