    I've dug zincs in way worse shape!
    Well, everyone has dug zincs in worse shape, but that coin is killer!

I soaked in warm distilled water for about an hour after the peroxide bath and than dried thoroughly under a desk lamp.

    Great coins Don! And I love that offset strike on the copper. Gives it a unique look for sure. Since I posted my best finds pic recently I haven't been out again. Looks like my season is done. Hope you can still get out a few more times.

    Don, that is one spectacular condition coin. It's hard to imagine those state issued coppers shiny and new, but that one was close. I didn't even know that the horse had an eye in the original design, I've seen so many that were so worn. Nor did I realize how fine the detail on the mane was. That is truly fantastic.

    Congratulations,

    Don can chime in on this to confirm, but my limited knowledge of NJ coppers tells me that many were weakly struck which can give the appearance of excessive wear.
