    Erik, I did not want to get your dander up.And since I'm 88 now I don't get out very often ,but I was a hunting machine for years because I worked the 11 to 7 shift ,and was able to hunt early and long. I never posted photos of my finds, but you would be amazed at what those many hours brought up. And further,THE WAY i always read of 'RUST NEVER RESTS WAS THE WAY." Y ou did a super job in displaying your pennies,and they sure look very nice. Congrats.

    Well,a great number of my fatty Indian cents did not fare to well in the soil here plus those flying eagle cents took a beating.Large cents were depending on the fact of no fertilizer being used.

    Thanks TH. Yes I think the metallurgy of the earlier IH cents contributes to their preservation in the soil. I can tell you that I have dug many pitted later IH cents--some even from these same properties. I did dig another 1864 cent recently that did have some pitting and didn't look as nice as these two cents.

    I just looked the compositions on some of the older is copper-nickle and copper-bronze and some are just bronze.

    Nice finds, nice post, nice pix!

    Hi - Thanks for the clarification on your post. I hope you will post more of your finds here as I'm sure you've found some amazing things. For the unfamiliar "Rust Never Sleeps" is the name of a Neil Young album from ca. 1979 or so that I thought you were quoting, but based on what you are telling me it sounds like Neil got it wrong . Thanks again for your post and for teaching me something--I'm now going to looking further into the origins of the "rust never rests" expression.

    Hot peroxide bath followed by toothpaste scrub. You wouldn't believe how encrusted the 1864 was before cleaning.

    Nice coppers and they came up nice from the cleaning.
    Using HP has proven some really amazing results on some coppers-and others it burnt them black (but they were roached to begin with) I used this 40% HP gel I got from a salon supplier for doing hair.
    Just put it in a plastic container out in the sun for the day and then rinse. Many years ago I use to post up the examples of the process but no time to do that now it seems.

    Yup right now in life it's a dump on the tail gate kind of guy show.
    Getting out to do a hunt is an accomplishment-let alone coming home spending just as much time cleaning/photos/posting up the day.
    Well there's no day left for that for myself-and I believe many others also.
    Though I tip my hat to you and others that do cut a slice of their valuable time out to clean/photo/post up-because it takes time-and others know and appreciate the efforts.
    Well done on the posts and finds.

    Thanks pepperj for the tip on the gel (I will definitely try it) and for recognizing the work that goes into a nice presentation of one's finds when it's possible to do so on a busy schedule. I had to take a couple years off from this stuff just to catch up on other things in my life.
