    On the Equinox 800 the VDI was jumping around from 24 to 28 with occasional 30's popping in (there were a couple of small square nails in there as well). Was not a "boomer" target as location was on a fairly steep side hill and coin was at a roughly 30-degree angle to surface about 8 inches...
  9. 1864 2-Cent Piece - First one I ever found

    I see the total production of the 2-Cent Pieces was 45.6 Million so surely they are out there to be found!! Keep on digging!!! Being 90% copper, I recall it showed up bouncing between 24 and 28 VDI on the Equinox 800.

    Glad you found that one as well - so exciting to get a really good find!!
  13. 1864 2-Cent Piece - First one I ever found

    Thanks!! Was thinking yesterday that as this was minted during the Civil War, there were probably relatively few of them that got to Virginia - a chance it could have been a Yankee soldier drop??
  14. 1864 2-Cent Piece - First one I ever found

    Yes, good advice. I saw a post online which showed large cents cleaned with vaseline and q-tips. Tried it on a wheat penny. Did not turn out good on my wheat cent, though he had excellent results!!

  18. 1864 2-Cent Piece - First one I ever found

    Good information - Thanks!! I showed it to a coin collector today and the first thing he said is "whatever you do, don't clean it", so I guess I plan to leave this one as is so I don't ruin it!!
