    KIng George II copper, 2 IHs, Relics & a New Cleaning Method!

    I had a great time as usual Saturday & saved a little bit of history in the process! My buddy Chris & I went to Granville to check some new property. We found a new site but the field needs cutting & the woods were very thick & covered in poison ivy. I did find a tombac & small cuff flat button so we will definitely be going back. We ended the day at a site that I searched when I first got back into detecting but had wrote it off because it was very trashy. I decided to give it a few minutes & my second signal was a King George II halfpenny (only my second)! It's awesome to find something that was made when North Carolina was still a British colony! So, we decided we better stay a while. I also found 2 Indian heads, a thimble & a few other relics. My buddy Chris found an 1898 barber dime, a couple flat buttons & some other neat relics. We found a ton of trash too but well worth it. I tried a new cleaning method on my coins this time, Le Crayon a Andre steel wool tip pencils. These are made specifically for cleaning coins & I must say that I'm pretty impressed. It cleans the coin much easier than a toothpick & does not affect the patina. There's some crust a toothpick simply will not remove but this seems to do the trick. The one Indian was toast but I was able to pull a date. I'll definitely be going back & cleaning some coins I thought there was no hope for. It was a hot day but luckily the clouds rolled in after lunch & made for a pleasant afternoon.Click image for larger version.

    I'd be interested in this too. I have a few 1812 pewters that could benefit from more mechanical crust removal. If you find out, let me know man.
