I just couldn't wait until this weekend to get back out to beach that has been generously giving up silver coins recently, so I went today for 2 1/2 hours during an incoming high tide. (I wasn't able to hunt the area of the beach that was accessible during low tide and where I've been finding silver jewelry along with larger coins.) However, it was still a terrific day!

I only found two wheat pennies (1926, 1944), but I managed to come home with the following silver coins:
2 Washington Quarters (1940, 1964)
4 Roosevelt Dimes (1952, 1952, 1960, 1964)
1 Mercury Dime (1944)
And a 1916 Barber Dime!

Here are the silver coins before and after cleaning (with pics of the Barber dime solo after the group photos):

I'm going to try to get back there this weekend and work the falling and low tides to see if there is anything left!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my post, and I hope your next hunt brings you joy!

I know when I was a young teen I use to amaze my friends by squirting taco bell hot sauce on a dirty penny while we ate lunch. Wiped clean when we was finished and it look brand new, to them. I could see it etched the metal or did something other then just clean.
I'm won't try that with any coins I find, promise🤘

Must of been the vinegar in the sauce (or at least one hopes)
