    She Was Pretty Hot, But Her Younger Sisterís Pretty Fine Too

    Some here may recall a very nice 1864 IHC I posted here last week. Today I found her younger sister, an 1865, and she cleaned up very nicely too. Just one year apart and both beautiful.

    Also found was a 1907 IHC, a small crotal bell, a couple wheat cents as well as few relics that Iím still sorting through.

    Thanks BOTB! These seem to be the exception rather than the rule. Soil here is NJ is pretty rough on copper. For some reason a few of the older IHCs seem to fare a bit better. Not sure why Large cents when found are mostly dug pretty toasted.

    What "jazz" are you talking about? I worked hard on the pics (took several shots to get them right) and cropped them nicely and put them together in a post with a subject line that was a little fun. Let me guess you're the kind of guy that dumps his uncleaned finds together with junk on the hatch back of his pickup and takes a group shot.

    *I* prefer when people quote lyrics in their tag line that they get them right--your tag line has been wrong for years. It's "Rust never sleeps".

    One of my all time favorite finds was a IH that looked like it came from the mint right out of the dirt. I think the metal composition is more bronze than copper in the older IH's
    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!
    I love this hobby so much, now I'm a coin licker!
