    Thank you! I think I should have posted it under "Today's Finds" instead of "Best Finds."

    Thank you! The obverse is slightly off struck. That's one of the things I love about these old hammered coins. No two are exactly the same.

    Ridiculously incredible condition. A Mass silver was #1 on my list and I found one a couple years ago. It had a 1664 right beside it. I give mi e a very light lemon juice bath to make the detail pop a bit more while trying to keep that nice dark tonight. That's a find of a lifetime and I congratulate you. To find one is incredible...in that condition is epic

    Thank you very much for your compliments and congratulations on your Noe 29! I haven't had the coin graded yet but a representative of one of the major auction houses contacted me after seeing a post of my find. He said it would likely grade either Extremely Fine or About Uncirculated (details). I haven't touched mine and have left the dirt on it for now (other than a spray of water in the field). I'm afraid to touch it!

    Congratulations Don!
    I just saw this post , maybe people like me are waiting to come out of "SHOCK" after seeing such a Sweet Coin.

    & Hey Donnie B from VA, Love the Hat , I'd now wear that one till it falls apart . 'Lucky Hat'!

    I'm not being mean as I look much 'Rougher' when out detecting.

    Great coin! May be a more common variety but that's why it's so hard to find a huge money one. You need decent to great condition and extreme rarity, or problematic / so-so condition with super rarity (or if you are incredibly lucky great condition & super rarity) ... and then on top of that it has to be a coin that has a big demand with people who are willing to fight for it. Being one of the more common ones makes it that much easier to keep... of course even a common MASS silver is a 'rare' coin, and a really rare find.

    "I'd"Leave it alone ( as a tiny scratch made by me would put my OCD into Overdrive.

    If I could make a 'levitation ' container for it I would. That way nothing could touch it. LOL

    This I can well understand my friend. I used a super soft mascara brush on mine with the light lemon juice. Mine did t look quite as nice out of the ground as yours. It was a much easier de idiom knowing that I'd never be able to sell it and would always ha e it in my collection. I just can't seem to part with anything I dig. Means too much to me. Best of luck to you in whatever de takin you go with my lucky friend

    Thank you! I'm still in shock! As for the hat, I am never without a Clemson hat so I have about six of them in varying states from new to " slightly distressed." When they get a little too ratty to wear to the store then they become digging hats until they fall apart!
