We (my son and myself) just started metal detecting little over a month ago. Pulled our first silver out. 1906 Barber Dime!! Decent shape. We had some time between ballgames so we went out to our field. Good times

Kinda of off topic a little but it is a good practice to clean silver or leave them? I don’t want to mess it up

I would not do any cleaning on that coin as it does have some collecting value. Cleaning decreases the value to collectors.

those with only the value of the silver and no or very little value to collectors can be cleaned. My first barber was a 1907 in not very good condition and it was black from being in the water for years. I left it as found just because i liked it that way Same with my barber dime. Only two barbers i have ever found.
