Know I have some, not sure about pics, will look and see.

One of my favorite coins to find.

I do! I’ll take some pics today. I actually found a first year IHP right before heart surgery last year, I don’t think I ever even cleaned it up.

These are IHC’s

Few of the better condition ones:

1860 Fatty


1881


1891


I’ll even toss in a toasted Flying Eagle. It was terrible when I dug it, but identifiable. I made it worse by trying to make it better. Wasn’t like it was anything I ruined, but I should have left it alone.

It’s correctly oriented, and you can see the eagles head and beak on the left, as well as the D in United (States) in the black crusty area about 11:00.


The back is worse than the front. You can see the O in One

I’d like to find a good one some day.

1873 Indian I found on some family property in West Virginia. I am in TN but can’t wait to visit again because I know there are some more old coins to be found. I imagine that property dates to late 1700s.

I’ve got a bunch of them. Unfortunately most are pretty crusty like these. My soil isn’t kind to them.

That first IH has great details.

I love the variety of colors you see on these once they’ve spent a few years in the dirt. Everything from brown, to light green to dark green. Some of them are damn near blue.

I use never chrome polish on mine.

I’m not selling them, so I don’t care about cleaning them. My ground freezes a couple feet deep and scratches them anyways.

This is a picture of one of mine above fresh out of the ground.

That always kind of gets me. A coin that’s been in the ground (and likely tumbled around by a plow) for 200 or more years, and they handle it like it’s a jar of nitro.

Yeah, cracks me up when all these guys leave rude comments on YouTube vids bitching at me for rubbing coins that I just plucked out of the ground. They already have microscopic scratches all over them from being in the ground for over a century. They’d get an environmental damage grade anyway so I don’t bother sitting there spraying them with a squirt bottle for 10 minutes just to get a date. I just wipe off enough dirt to see the date, then toss them in my pocket. Most of the time I don’t even bother cleaning them.

I brush them off or rub them between my finger and thumb. I don’t use water on them … I found out the hard way that water destroys copper coins.
