    Found the most unusual Whatsit today .. Thought it was a glass eye!

    Rang up like silver, and I believe it is a silver dime encased in some sort of rosin. I can see reeded edges on the coin and is the same size as a dime. It is domed shaped on the front and totally flat on the reverse. The rosin is sort of a light amber color. Crazy piece!

    I have been debating with myself whether I should smash it to see what the dime is or leave it in tact just for the novelty aspect of it.

    Got more photos? I'm not sure what what I am looking at. Is the suspected dime displayed ontop of another round object?

    That is a unique piece. I'm somewhat split on this one. Something tells me if it were mine, I'd leave it alone, because I like to display my items as found. My obvious curious side says to crack it open !

    I'd save it for years and years until the day you are too old and decrepit to metal detect anymore and you can crack it open with a walnut cracker while sitting in a rocking chair watching wheel of fortune.

    I think I am going to leave it in tact .. I have cleaned it up a little more in the ultra sonic cleaner, and like the looks of it as is. The coin will remain a mystery!

    Here are a few more photographs.
