Today’s curious find

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

Since it is only a silver dime and hopefully not a 1916 D LOL ..it's interesting like it is..

Congrats on finding that silver, if your just looking to see what you can find and not worried about what you find, then leave it. If you want to see and collect the coins, then separate them by soaking them in distilled water or putting them in heated hydrogen peroxide and keep heating it up after it cools and put it back it, keep repeating till they separate

That’s what I was thinking, as far as collecting I have literally
Hundreds of silver dimes. So I think leaving it like this makes it more unique.

Can you see the date? I would always wonder if I just left a key date undiscovered..

I think it is cool as is but the desire to see the date often forces my hand, but doesn't always end well ;-)
