Today I was looking at stuff I found metal detecting last summer and noticed I had this 1869 Indian Head cent. I looked it up and the dissapointment set in. The value of this year is why I ask. Not sure if it is even worth holding on to at all. The last image is the recerse of coin..
I also detect and when I find IHP in this condition, I wipe the dirt off as best I can and put them into a bag. Now I have I nice little bag of them and its pretty neat to have and show people when they are over and show interest in detecting.
A lot of people also make shadow boxes and display pieces for their finds. Something like this would look great alongside some buckles, buttons, and bullets.
