I went detecting in the woods at Quarry hill. Too bad that someone lost their keys.

Well done on the great looking half. :occasion14:
Loosing a set of keys really sucks.

Is it my eyes and the picture playing tricks on me ? The reverse almost looks as though the Eagle design is incuse. It also looks like there is a seam around the center of the coin and its 2 parts, as if it were a magicians coin. Hope I'm wrong, and not trying to be insulting, it just looks that way in the pic. The reason I say this, is because I found a Kennedy Half one time that looked the same way, and it was a 2 piece magicians coin. Nice find either way. Gotta love the Walking Libs.

It's not a magician's coin.
I had a quarter that was a magician's coin and it had heads on both sides.

Cleaned up nicely, congrats on a beautiful coin!
There are some black spots still on it on both sides and I'm not sure what it is.

I think that's typically other metals from the ground that attach to the silver. Other than rubbing it with foil and lemon juice (electrolysis), I don't know of any non-damaging ways to remove it. Looks great anyways!
