Hey so just walking my dog last week, hes half German shepherd, well I take him over to the woods and let him off his leash since no one else is around and just let him run around, occasionally I see the German Shepherd in him and he gets a scent starts digging and going crazy and I pulled this where he was digging amongst a couple dozen other coins, all of which or extremely corroded and Rusty some actually look like they were petrifying, this coin did not look at all like this when I found it, I managed to bring out some of the design none of that silvery color was showing and it was caked and corroded to the point where I originally couldn't even identify as a coin 100%, knowing it obviously is worthless unless it can be identified so I slowly and patiently started to see if it's possible if I could get it to the point we're at least identification was possible, before I got all the corrosion off it weighed almost 23 g, and now even with the corrosion that still on there it weighs exactly 20 grams, the rim looks to have a vine or leaves etched around it, my estimate is it would probably weigh under 19, I dont know if it still has value but if it is the 1776 continental dollar, I feel privileged, excited and extremely lucky even holding one, my question is what do you do in this situation continue to work at it impossibly destroy or ruin it or leave it as is

Well guess it's obvious I need to be worked a little more it's definitely a continental dollar though, whether it's authentic or not I can't speak on but if you look where fugio, and mind your business is, you can make out the letters somewhat and on the reverse you can make out we and one and nose rings are unmistakable I appreciate the response

I can't even tell if that's a coin for certain. What's the diameter? That's likely to be more reliable than the weight. On the plus side, who needs a metal detector when you have a dog like that!

I'm not seeing it. Those surfaces are so corroded and eaten up, there's no way of seeing the original devices at this point, IMO. Look hard enough and one can probably find just about anything in there! Pareidolia.

and best of luck.

The Continental Dollar was made of pewter which doesn't corrode like that
