    Re: homemade sand sifter

    good idea, but more and bigger holes. A dime is .702" so 5/8" holes would work.

    Re: homemade sand sifter

    Hi according to the R.S.Yeoman Redbook a Dimes Diamention is:

    DIMES
    DRAPED BUST 1796-1807 19MM
    CAPPED BUST 1809-1837 18.5MM
    LIBERTY SEATED 1837-1891 17.9MM
    BARBER 1892-1916 17.9MM
    MERCURY 1916-1945 17.9MM
    ROOSEVELT 1946-2008 17.9MM


    BUT WHAT HAPPENS IF YOUR IN A AREA THAT COULD POSSIBLY HAVE
    HAD A HALF DIME LOST THERE AND YOUR USEING A SAND SCOOP
    W/ ALL THEM BIG HOLES IN IT, YOUR GOING TO LOSE THE HALF DIME

    HALF DIME DIAMENTION:
    FLOWING HAIR 1794-1795 16.5MM
    DRAPED BUST 1796-1805 16.5MM
    CAPPED BUST 1829-1837 15.5MM
    LIBERTY SEATED 1837-1873 15.5MM

    SO BIGGER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER

    MM INCHES INCHES
    15 0.59 9.45/16

    SO ITS BETTER TO USE A 9/16" DRILL BIT
    JUST TO COVER YOUR BACK FORTY

    Re: homemade sand sifter

    Half dimes around here we call nickles. LOL
    Don't see much olden coins on the Oregon coast.
    Now stud diamond earrings would be neat to find. Very small tho.
    Perhaps some kind of classifier system that could come and go as you wish would work.
    I will look into that for my scoop.
