    1877 Indian. WOW

    I havent been out in about 4 weeks due to my busy work scedule but had some time to clean some recent finds (Indians). Me and my dectecting buds have found many indians in this spectacular park ( witch is now banned to detecting). we would get 15- 30 each an outing. My best indian day was 34 and my friend Randy had a 42 indian day. Needless to say we accumulated quite a few, I myself have about 900 from this now off limits park. The east coast is horrible to Indians so I would just place them in a holder for later cleaning, most are common dates but some are the goodies. I would guess this Indian came from one of our May 2008 hunts because it was near the top of my pile of coins to be cleaned. This 1877 came from a 2 sandwich coin find (i always leave my sandwiched coins together till home and I just put a bunch in olive oil for cleaning and when I broke them apart i was sooooo happy to see the elusive date. The back of the coin has that east coast rock hard deposit on it. I cleaned the front of with a toothpick and olive oil an it cam clean quite easily, the back appears to be a much harder job. It has a full liberty and i would like to get it all cleaned up. Are there any professional places to clean this coin and maybe get it slabbed? I dont want to damage the back with my toothpick trick and I have tried 0000 steel wool in the past but this coin is too pretty to try that on. Any ideas on the way to get this coin back to its full beauty would be helpfull. I enclosed a pic of some of my uncleaned indians, what a job I have ahead of me but now I am driven.

    WOW!! Congratulatins! I too have been fortunate enough to dig an 1877. I would try the peroxide solution to clean it although some would say just take it to a professional due to its value.
    Good Job!

    Hi Great Find

    Now your next project is too give that 1877 IHP a good bath in soap & water

    Then ship it to NGC & have them too encapsulate it & grade it, it will run you like
    $30 which includes Shipping, Insureance & such

    http://www.ngccoin.com/

    you will need to submite it too them

    If it comes back as being VF-20 your lookin @ a
    $2,000.00 coin

    NGC or PCGS will send it back to you ungraded, and you will still pay the fee. ANACS will grade and put environmental damage, but they won't clean the coin

    NCS is a branch of NGC, and the ANA choice for cleaning and grading coins. They can clean it as good as anyone in the world, here is their website address:

    Good Job!
    Peroxide method will not work now, since he has already gotten olive oil on the coin. 


    NCS is where it needs to go for restoration--and it would be well worth the fee (if they are willing and able to take on the project).




    Great find!

    Re: 1877 Indian. WOW

    As Buckleboy said, the peroxide bath would not work now. Unless you clean the olive oil off with several scrubbings of soap and water with a "soft" toothbrush. My advice is pay the fee to NGC. With the value of this coin that is your best bet.
