    This Indian has seen better days

    Hey all. I did not get any silver on my fathers day hunt, but I found a few things. A small plated ring, a few newer coins, but I do not find a ton of Indian Head pennies.

    I found this 1896 penny, it got impacted on the obverse from what I can tell.

    It is hard to find something this old at this site and still be able to date it, as things get corroded pretty badly.

    I also pulled a wheatie, a 1944 S.

    No silver today, but a nice hunt in the rain.

    My kind of fathers day.

    Thanks for looking and HH to all.

    Shame about the IHP being damaged. I'll take it off your hands.

    I agree, it is still an IH and even toasted that badly still a great find, at least some of us think so
