I'm not sure how many of you saw my last post but I went to see the LO today... I wanted to show her my finds from Monday and ask if I could bring a hunting partner on Saturday. She was super happy I wanted to show her and we chatted for a little while, I decided to hunt in their field for the last 35 minutes before sunset and it was sooo worth it! I dug a few neat relics, two wheaties, and best of all, a two-cent piece! Before today a two-center hadn't even been on my radar, when I popped the hole I wasn't sure if it was a button or some sort of coin, I thought maybe it could be a half c or a two and I gave it a little bit of a rub until I saw the two. My third bucketlist coin this week! How would you guys suggest I clean her up? I toothpicked away a little bit on one side, do you think this is the best method? Thanks for looking and happy hunting! Just wait until Saturday... me and my uncle are going to spend a good portion of the afternoon/evening digging at this place.

With the pocked S on one side, could it be a love token? Cool Find!

That would be super cool! It was an old school house mid-1800s to 1950s so I can imagine some little boy making a trinket for his sweetheart or something like that.

I love 2 cent pieces. I would let it completely dry out and then give it a good tooth-pick'n. Nice find!

Congrats on your 2 Cent Piece. With that stamped S on the reverse, it had to mean something. Gives it a personal touch.

I gave it a little bit of toothpicking and some more details came out! It's hard to see in the pics but most of the design is there and it's an 1864. It could have come out better but I have no complaints!
