Why do you like to find a coin like this when detecting?

    Nice find! Are you planning on cleaning them up? If so, do you mind sharing your process?

    They're probably clad, so soapy water and a brush so you can spend them. Good luck. Peace Roy

    Rock Tumbler with sand, water and dish soap for 3-4 hours. Drain in a strainer and dry on a strainer board. Take to the bank and run through their machine. No % like coinstar.

    @Namvet69 thank you for the insight. It’s very helpful.
    @pocketpiececommems thats great! Are you just using beach sand or a finer grit to knock the environmental grime off?
    I just ordered my kids some detectors, and we’re looking forward to treasure hunting.

    @pocketpiececommems... Nice finds... I guess no silver though.... A cartridge cleaning device (for brass cartridges to reload) is a great tool for cleaning them up, and not as messy. Cheers, RickO

    I once found 3 Washies in a single hole while detecting with LordMarcovan. They were 1975's about 6 or 7 inches deep.

    More importantly, you got to remove the items in the top 4" to get to the deeper targets masked by all the common trash. Peace Roy
