What's Your Clad To Keeper Ratio?

Hi all,

I got into metal detecting recently and have been enjoying it so far. After hunting my yard and a couple of hiking trails in my town I have a about a buck fifty in modern pennies, nickels, and clad. While I'm happy to find any coins at all (it beats cans and nails) like many of you I'm after something a bit older. So I wondered, what would you say your ratio of keepers to clad found while metal detecting? For my purposes, a keeper would be any coin older than 1960 and/or one that is made of precious metals. What do you all think based on your experience?

Nice coins!

From these pics I grade F-12 for the 3CN. Nice little die break @ 2:00 on the reverse.

As for the 3CS, I'm conflicted on the toning. It's not the prettiest in my opinion,but then again I've seen lots of weirdly toned examples of this type. I'll give it a VF-25.

The value is over $50, so you got an excellent deal regardless! Glad to hear the type set is coming along, Duncan!

Well, how many of the competition have one like that in the 1914-D hole of their 7100's?

I don't know what kind of album you use Dave, but I've never encountered a Dansco with oval holes before! .gif" class="inlineimg" alt="" title="" />

Nice pick! I've used acetone for coins with dust particles on the surface, works like a charm. Just be careful!

If you could crop out the backround to show the coin only that would be excellent. Thank you!

I wouldn't bother with the appraisal. Literally no doubt that it's fake.

I tried a wet q-tip on it, just the *lighest* dabbing on it. I'll give the toothpick method a shot, even if it slightly terrifies me.
