That's the way it is with old coppers that have been in wet soil for 200 years. I've got at least 5 no date coppers that flaked away as soon as they started to dry after coming out of the ground. I've learned from those mistakes. If they're flaking, leave them alone, put them in a cardboard flip and live with it.

    The best way for me to resolve this pointless debate is to dig another1700's coin from the spot, just as long as it isn't another bar cent! LOL!
    Bathe the coin in Mineral Oil or Extra Virgin Olive Oil to stabilize the copper from further degradation, rinse lightly with water, pat dry in the folds of a soft towel, then place it in a 2x2 protective holder.

    Congratulations on the find. I grew up in Western Cranston, left in '82 for the Army then settled in NC. There is a lot of colonial history there. Wish I had a detector back them. Best of luck

    Thanks, guys! This spot keeps giving up the good stuff. Found an iron relic there a few weeks back and had no idea what is was. Posted it here the other day and it ended up being a flintlock musket mechanism from the early 1800's! In case anyone missed that thread, here's a couple of pics (before and after electrolysis).

    Tim: Nicely done! I've only dug one lock plate in 30+ years, and it was a Civil War percussion type, but did recover a nice frame to a mid-19th century boot pistol frame a few years back. You've come up with another nice find. There more of the white stuff coming later today, but I'll just double up on my research to be ready when the weather turns.

    Congrats on the coin and the flintlock pistol ... I knew what it was soon as seeing the first pic only because Last year I found a French gun flint that would have been in the same type gun.... I havenít jumped into detecting yet my obsession is Indian artifacts thatís what I was looking for when I found the flint but I think Iím gonna buy myself a detector for my birthday in April hereís pic of the flint ...

    No I am not an Expert!! Are you?

    I am pretty knowledgeable on Error and Variety Coins and can usually spot counterfeit U.S. Silver Coins fairly easily, especially if in hand. Like many others, I have difficulty spotting counterfeit Copper Coins unless something jumps right out and is obvious. I find it sad, that on a website where folks go to show their' finds or get help, there are too many folks that are quick to condemn an O.P.'s coin and too many folks that jump on the same train!

    Metal detecting is 99 percent location and 1 percent luck.
