    Two old coins in my tumbler , one a Semi Key Date !

    I finished my coin tumbling today and had a surprise ! These are the clad coins from Sundays hunt . I never tumble old coins but this one I didn't know I had in the bunch . The first is just a 1959 D penny , the 2nd one is a 1921S ! I know it's just a semi key date but it's the first one I have ever found in 18 years of detecting . I thought I would share it .

    I tumbled my very first silver quarter because it wasn't shiny like everyone here on the forum kept saying silver would be lol. I don't know about you, but I learn more from my mistakes than any other way.

    I mainly coin shoot, but I also enjoy relic hunting and shallow ocean hunting.
    Those pennies came out looking awesome!

    Nice job with the tumbler. Looks better than an unidentifiable crusty wheatie.

    are you dry-tumbling (?) - I heard if you dry tumble coins with say - nut shells or cracked corn or something - the results are real good.....

    Nice finds! The 1921S cent could bring about $5.00.

    Target must be in the ground...Coil must swing over target...User must dig.

    Gold for the money...silver for the pleasure...copper for the history.

    Water , soap and the tiny rocks you put in a fish tank . It works great ! Try 12 - 24 hours .
