  1. Hold on...not so fast! Did you find it using your CTX3030 while metal detecting in Smith's Cove? Looks Templar to me. I hope you put it in your top pocket! 😁
  2. If I had 1,000 zinc pennies that were bad, it just isn't worth my time and money to send them in to get $10 back in pennies, if that is what can be done. My question would be if the coins are unusable and would just be thrown away in the trash, could you take them to the recycling center and at least get something for them?
  3. Due to this thread being revived and that I had to start another peanut container to store coins in, it seemed like a great time to clean coins today. So far two of the four full plastic jugs' coins have been cleaned and are drying. I put them into a 5 gallon bucket with enough water to cover the coins. A bit of dish soap and agitation are all that is needed. The classifying screen that came with my Garrett gold panning kit works well to put the coins into after their bath. I then simply rinse them off and put them somewhere flat to dry. Once cleaned and dried, they will be redeemed for Amazon
  4. Nothing now, but there certainly may have been originally.
  5. It's been a long dry spell since doing well this spring on the gold. Today I was out with the Nox 15" coil at a local park. This rang up a solid 11-12 in Park 1. Can't find one like it with a movable head.

  7. Starting at p.104 might be helpful. http://www.e-yearbook.com/sp/eybb?school=110020&year=1942 Nice ring!
  8. Looks like a decoration from a church. What does the back look like?
  9. Cool find 100 years after his death. His family likely has no recollection of him other than maybe pictures. Almost seems like it would be a neat item for a museum in his home town if they had one. Or, it would be an awesome story to tell others as they see it in your display case! Thanks for sharing all your finds with the forum members!

  11. Sounds like you have just a shade more than this couple had, but it should be close!
  12. If you take them to a machine, make sure to wash them before dumping. The first time I used a machine, the poor woman had to open it up 4 times to clean the inside because of all the dust. The next time around I washed the coins and didn't have any issues. The Wells Fargo bank inside our grocery store I tried to take my rolled coins to the first time took a sample roll of each type of coin and opened them. They would not accept all my rolls because they said the company who get the coins from them would not take them. The bank would be left eating the cost. That is the reason I went to th
