    My Oldest metal detector finder!

    I donít know how common it is to find 1800ís silver in the Los Angeles area but I managed to pull a 1852 3cent coin and a 1943 steel war penny off the same property. I almost didnít know what I had found until I cleaned the coin off a bit.

    It’s funny because these were the only two coins I dug.

    Wow. Steel pennies are a rare find since they rust to dust after some time in the ground. Amazing that it is so uncorroded. I have dug three steel pennies, I think. One, I'm sure of, was stuck in between two other wheats in a spill of 15 or so wheats. I found this in the 80's and realized that the two stuck together with a rusty disc in the middle was a steel penny. That penny has since broken into many many pieces...it's turning into dust. I keep it in a bottle cap. Initially, it broke into two pieces and has been deteriorating ever since.
    The trime is a bucketlister for us all and I have yet to get one of those.
    GRATS!

    I found them on a 1920’s property with very little of any landscaping. The penny was actually in some hard pack dry dirt. I almost didn’t dig the signal. It actually came through with my iron discrimination on. The trime was found under a set of concrete stairs. I was picking it up through the concrete and decided to try to dig to it from the side. I got really lucky and found it in a couple of minutes with the pinpointer. It was literally just a crusty black disk. I didn’t even think it was anything until I got home and washed it off. I screamed WTF so loud my wife thought something was wrong hahaha.

    Definatly the rarest coin I have found.

    My question is, has anybody else found any trimes in the Los angels area?

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    Wow, I've found steel pennies, but they were always just an "impression" in the sod, but with the penny gone to steel heaven.

    That must be pretty hospitable dirt you dug that out of!
