  1. Lightning strikes twice!!!

    If you read my post from yesterday, I found my first two large cents. Went back to my buddy’s farm to hunt the same spot. About an hour of hunting and I found two more. An 1831 and a 1835. Haven’t cleaned them up as I just got home. Something that is interesting and not sure how significant it...

  11. JFK half..... Any ideas?

    Found this 1971 half in a box today. Appears to be silver and weight is 11.0 grams (weighed multiple times with Cal’d scale). If it were plated I would expect it to weigh a little over 11.3. Any thoughts?

  16. Copper Cents

    Just curious as to how many hunters save all copper cents and why? I know that the cent is worth more than a cent in copper value, but is the point just to stash them until the mint stops producing them?
