    I sure hope it don't take another 40 years to find another Seated coin! That would put me in my late 90's.

    Anyhow, here it is all cleaned up. This is what a coin looks like when pulled from gravel.
    I also ordered a USB microscope last week. It came in today so these pictures were taken with it. Not bad pictures for 35 bucks!

    Grats on the first. They say they come easier after you get the monkey off your back.
    I started this hobby in the mid 80's out here and finally managed to find my first seated on Thanksgiving day in 2017. It's an 1883 dime.

    Grats and GL next time out!

    Congratulations on a great find. Those are hard to come by, but worth the wait. I found an 1875 liberty seated a few months ago that I wanted to clean just a bit. What did you end up doing for this one, as it looks great other than some gravel damage? Again, congrats!

    I put water in small pot then partially submerged some tinfoil in the water. I then added more water to the tinfoil and heated the pot over the stove to the point of just about to boil. While the pot was heating up i added about a teaspoon of salt to the water in the foil and made sure it was dissolved pretty good. once the water was at its boiling point i removed the pot from the heat and put the coin in the salt water. I then sprinkled baking soda over the coin and watched the coin clean its self over about 5 min.

    Note, if the water gets cool, remove the coin and repeat the process.

    Congrats Ammoman! Good to see that IYAAYAS in your avatar. I was a 462 in the Air Force so i got the pleasure of working with the Ammo troops. Fun times on TDY and deployments for sure!
