    1825 Bust Dime

    Been md'ing close to 2 months now and found my first Bust Dime. Looks real nice. I've been working and old farm from the late 1700's and have found some interesting stuff. The Dime was 6" down under tree roots. I'll post some of the other finds later as I need some ID on a few items.

    This dime was really nice to find...:

    Thanks guys!! I was really excited to find it as well. Didn't realize I have such a lucky find. As for the condition, yes, it came out of the ground as is... I hit it with some soapy water and a soft tooth brush to get the dirt off, but that was all. The soil it was in was very rich, black, soil. Smelled of dank earth. Guess that is the reason she's in such good shape?

    Funny thing is, I had already thit that spot A FEW DAYS EARLIER, hahaha!! I had the DD coil on and couldn't get real close to the base of the tree I found the dime under. I bought a Sniper 4.5 coil a few days ago and went back over today and re-hit some spots...that was one of them. Glad I did!! I'm all pumped for tomorrow. Gonna' take that Sniper coil to an old school I have been doing pretty well in.

    Gonna' wrap up that coin and save it for my daughter. She just turned 2, so I'll wait a few year before I hand it over, haha!!

    Could this price actually be true?!?! If so, mine is in better condition. No way this thing is worth this much>>:

    Two months of detecting and you already dug a Bust dime?
    You were probably one of those people that constantly screwed the grade curve in my old math class!
    Kudos!

    Would this be considered a "banner" find?

    i would seriously consider getting that slabbed. that could command some good money and plus it will protect it. And if you don't know - DO NOT CLEAN with any kind of silver cleaner. Don't do a thing more to it. you've done really well, congrats.

    Thank you!! Nope, not going to do anything to it. Hit it with some hot, soapy, water and a soft toothbrush to get the dirt off and that is all. What is "slabbed".

    Says here that this Bust is worth $500. Mine is in better shape. Guess it could bring some $$$? http://www.coinworld.com/dealers/lc-...f-uncertified/
