    90 Cents short of a dollar. But it's silver and my oldest!

    Last week my son and I hit a permission with lots of potential. Because of the harsh dry conditions and massive amounts of trash we cut the hunt short.

    Today, I went back and finally dug my first Seated coin! Considering I started detecting in the mid 1970's, its been a long time coming!

    Here are all my finds for the day.

    When I first dug it, I assumed it was a silver Rosie and dropped it in my pocket. When I got to the car, I Pulled the dime out and poured some water over it.

    Talk about a surprise! If I had not already been sitting I would have fell over!

    Thanks everyone! Right now its pretty ugly. I don't think the dime is worth very much money so i will try and clean it. Any ideas on how to minimize the damage? I was thinking of the baking soda and tin foil method.

    I don't know much about the soda and tinfoil but a small amount of bakeing soda in your palm and a couple drops of water for a paste really works well for staining and tarnish on silver.
