Hi guys sorry about the quality of the photo these are a little better. I still cant make out the year quite well. Don't know whether to clean it up. I kinda hate to for obvious reasons. Don't want to scratch her up.

Silver coins scratch very easily when trying to clean off the packed in dirt. What works really well are ultrasonic jewelry cleaners, the sound waves cause the dirt to go POOF in a cloud without scratching the patina/tarnish of the silver coin. Just don't use it on very thin coins like worn 3 cent silvers or on green coins like Indians. The really thin silver coins can crack (don't ask me how I know this doh!) and the layer of green corrosion on Indians can also fracture and break off around the coin edges.

Good to know thanks for the info I think I will pass though Charles I just love looking at it in it’s current state. Boy just want to get back out there again and see what else I can dredge up! Thanks for the info!

Dug them with my Se Pro, dug 2 more tonight its been dubbed the button honey hole.

Exp, I too cant see much detail on the coin. I dont thibk its a cleaning issue, but more of a camera/user thingy.
Try to see if your camera has a Macro setting, that will surely mess you up when lenses is too close to object. Also, if you have a scanner on PC, maybe try that. A buddy always uses the scanner and it works great.
Hope that helps! Love the back on SQLs and older coins, reverse doesnt seem to get enough attention... cant forget our Eagle!
Take care and keep digging!
