Hello All, I am new here. I found this coin while walking in a historic cemetery yesterday. I believe it was buried and the top soil had eroded down enough for me to spot it. Can anyone offer me advise on grading it? I spent some time trying to figure it out but it seems tricky because some areas are more worn down than others,especially on the reverse. I believe it to be a small date Capped Bust Dime 1821. Thank you.
The face just shows pitting from years of being buried. No expert but what I have learned for counterfeit detection from this site is to study the date. The date here matches size shape and position looks good to me. Got me jealous.
