    Few odds and ends from this hunt nothing all that neat. Oddly found a second wreath button like one I found not long ago the first one is from my 20 acres and this one came from my neighbors. Click image for larger version.

    I've been hunting for years and have only found a handful of those. Most don't have dates anyway and silver is silver.

    Congrats on your first Standing Liberty Quarter. I know how you feel. A few years back, I dug a Barber Quarter that was in / near a fire. I could only get enough date and detail to know it was a Barber.

    I tried that it after that. I'm going to see if electrolysis will knock some of that off. Can't hurt to try

    Congrats on your SLQ! Definitely give foil/baking soda electrolysis a try, I've cleaned up some silvers that looked as bad as yours and now you'd never know. It will probably take several attempts, but don't give up, as long as you can smell the rotten egg odor it's still working.

    so finding a coin that went through a fire is actually pretty interesting as it might point to a burnt down homestead where all was lost (i.e. more coins that the owner never retrieved)

    I found a field that had just a horrendous patch of iron and tin pieces everywhere, i pulled what i thought was a blob of melted tin out until i saw the edge and date of a barber half, after that find i stayed and plucked through the debris to find several more coins.

    hope this helps,

    Electrolysis is showing progress right away. Foil and vinegar method had no effect but for some reason Electrolysis is working

    Several sites around where I metal detect show signs of fire. I find lots of blobs of metal metal even complete melted chunks of brass

    Also note I know they are close I'm keeping an eye out and yeah I know the clip is rough on the coin but I clipped it on the very most damaged part. I know there are those nit picky people out there lol

    1929 is the date and it had a lot of detail left under the crud somehow. I had to go rough on the electrolysis so I think the copper in the silver bled through or I did something wrong but still better better the mess it was. Click image for larger version.

    It's a shame that the soil was so hard on her as she was really nice when lost. Go out and find #2! Grats on a nice bucketlister.

    Wow...that one is super crunchy! Regardless, as you said, silver is silver. Your next SLQ will have to be in better shape. Hope you find it soon.
