    was looking for gold on the beach, got an unexpected find

    i was looking all day on the beach trying to find some gold, digging every tab signal. when i was about to leave i got a deep signal in this hard packed sand. i thought it was another piece of foil. but when i dug it i was surprised to find a buffalo nickel. after i got all the sand and corrosion enough to see the date. i was amazed to see that it was a 1921-S, a key date the sad part is that it still is very corroded and will probably only sell for the lowest grade, but it has the details enough that if it wasn't all green and corroded it would graded as XF-45.
