    Its a very nice coin, but those that have been on here awhile like to see the dirty coin in the hole or before cleaning. It increases your chance of votes, however with new ownership of Tnet you may make it.

    I was thinking more because of the condition. I have seen many other dimes like this one around the hunting sites, so I know the find of the coin itself isn't very rare. Unforunately for some, there was no real dirt on this coin. It came out of very rich, loosed soil, so I literally just brushed of the dirt that was stuch between the starts with water and a soft toothbrush. I was VERY surprised by the condition and when I saw the age. i don't really care if it made it to "banner" status, i was just curious. Thanks for the info.

    Pretty much came out of the ground that way. I used some hot, soapy, water and a soft toothbrush to get some of the dirt off that was between the stars/date and the eagles wings on the back.

    The last link shows a coin that has been "slabbed" or was rated and encased by Third-Party Coin Grading | Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). It's just a third party rating agency to help authenticate and rate a coin. This can greatly increase the sale amount. Others on here can speak more knowledgeably about it.

    I would recommend never taking a toothbrush to silver coins. Well maybe a silver roosie that's just worth silver. That can put fine small scratches called hairlines in the metal that mess up the surfaces and reduce value. I've had success just loading up the coin with soap and letting it lift the dirt off. Maybe very light dabbing or a soak in oil. You never want to rub

    Yours is cleaned, therefore you would be lucky to get $30.00. If you send it in to PCGS they WILL be able to tell that is has fine scratches from a toothbrush. I see it all the time. 99% of dug coins that get slabbed are graded "Cleaned" or "Environmental Damage". This drastically takes away from the value. Your coin is at BEST ef-40. Look them up. Books and charts are just for reference, Ebay is the real market.
