That is a super great start in entering the hobby. Congratulations.



Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.

I have been hunting that same field off and on and found a 1926 Mercury Dime today ...I am going to keep pounding that field. There should be more. About 8 inches down and it was a scratchy signal.

Nice find! As far as cleaning goes, most replies are correct. However, it is not a special key date and if you dont plan on selling it, I would dip it in professional coin cleaner. It has been in the dirt and likely has some scratches from initial inspection.
Its a personal preference, so do what you think. Id clean it and get it framed as your first silver.

Just started metal detecting in April 2018 with my son. I have always loved outdoors and history so it was a perfect match. Found both silvers on my property. It has been a field in the past. Wish I would have picked it up years ago
