    Big silver, Indians, and bucket list coin for me!

    Haven't posted my finds here in a while but here are my last 2 hunts. I just pulled this Walker half dollar at a pounded local park! It was a bucket lister I have been chasing for about 4 years! Also found some nice Indians including a beautiful 1873 semi key date! The other finds are from door knocking yesterday. Thanks for looking!

    Beautiful finds! Wish I could get pulls like that in 10 hunts. Did you dip them or clean them? I like those bad boys green.
    Great finds, good luck on many more.

    Nice Walker ! I'm wondering why the date on the 1873 IH is so much smaller , than on the 1891?

    Thanks!!

    I soak the Indians in vegetable oil and then gently remove dirt and debris with toothpick. Then wipe them off with soft cloth. I have had good luck with that method. Gets them clean and preserves the patina.

    Thanks! Not sure on dates they must have just changed the dies slightly between those years?? If you look at other examples online they have the size difference between the years also.

    Nice finds! Congrats on the big silver! Those IHP's are in great shape! That 1891 looks like it was dropped right after it was minted! The details on the feathers are great.
