Found this today, super happy about it. We hit a new permission, 1830 farm. Everything was gone by 1920... House, barns, everything. I was excited to work an area that predated aluminum trash. Turns out the square nails close to power lines were equally as challenging. Working an area by an old tree I came across this. 1875 Seated Liberty Half Dollar that the reverse was wiped, fancy added & initialized. The obverse is mint with the exception of where the pin was soldered on.

As a numismatist, it makes me cringe, :violent1: but, as jewelry, it's pretty cool! :icon_thumleft:
I'm a Numismatist as well, but the way I look at this is simply, it would never have been found unless it was converted & lost. So your choice is an interesting Love Token or Nothing.
