    Silver Coin Returned to old wharf area where I found 2 LCs last week

    water was supper rough and viz was awful, but did get a rare find - Canadian 1883 5c piece - what they call a "fish scale"
    smaller than the holes in my scoop and it fell thru twice - luckily I wear a mask and dropped down to pick it up
    got an IH penny - pretty worn
    a Buffalo nickel and an old gold ring - more bronze nails and old lead but this was the only interesting find
    funny thing was - since I found the LCs and older IHs last week - I told others that there was a chance of possibly
    finding half dime or 3c piece there but would have to be careful cause they would fall thru too - never expected one of these
    from the water

    ring was disappointing after I pulled from scoop to see it was missing its stones - was found not to far from where I got 2 large cents last week - it was from a hole loaded with junk - pulled some iron from hole - then some lead - then an old wheatie - then I looked in scoop to see the ring - got excited when I saw prongs - viz was poor and it was not till I brought up to my mask that I saw 2 stones were missing
    also got 2 thin mercs from another spot same day (not pictured)

    Great digs!
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

    Very cool, I still haven't been in water clear enough to see. I would love to find old Canadian silver, found a 1918 Cuban half, still no Canadian silver.
    Nice hunt, cool site.

    nice day of splashing in the water
    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    nickles have 75% copper in them - so depending on the soil - it will determine if it will turn color or degrade
    very seldom will turn much in color or degrade up here in our salt waters if found in sandy bottom - if its a mucky bottom they will darken -
    that buffalo just had a light black powder coating on it - just a lite rub with my glove underwater and that is how it came out
    that indian head was not cleaned either - that is how it came out after a swipe of the thumb
    it just had a thin crust that came right off - one of these days I got to try and do a vid to show how they come up as found
    silver here comes out in pretty good shape - for saltwater that is - but you go a few miles down the road in either direction and silver is super caked and encrusted
    the soil is different here

    Congrats on the 'Fishie' and the IH Casper!
    Anytime you can find silver is a good day!
