An 1843 Liberty Seated Half Dime. Someone Dug it, I would think.

    That coin must have been in the ground for a long time.

    It has certainly had the opportunity.

    Silver usually holds up much better than this in the ground. This one looks like it spent some time in an acid bath.

    .i watched a YouTube video a few weeks ago where someone was getting unidentifiable coins dug up from the ground and they soaked them in nic-o-date and they came out looking similar to that
