Curious find from today

Find this today it’s a silver dime with I believe two additional either steel washers or steel pennies stuck to it. The question is should I separate or leave it?
While I have been metal detecting since the late seventies I have not been hunting much for the last ten years.
I currently have a mine lab Excalibur that I purchased about 2000, an Explorer which is a first generation and an Exterra 70. All three still work like new. I found the dime today with the Exterra.

Good for you. I think I would separate them myself. I still have my X-terra 70 that I bought about 6 years ago. When the 705 came out I bought one and then ran the two head to head. Apparently, my 70 was made on a good day because it beat out the 705 and I sold the 705. Didn't like the international key symbols on the 705 either.

That's a tough question.
Personally, I'd keep it as it is as a testimony to how well an Xterra sniffs out the goodies even in the presence of larger iron.

In any case, it's a cool find. :thumbup: Congratulations!
