    Came out of the ground nearly black. And it rang up like a wheat penny.
    Took some cleaning and itís still very stained. But itís an 1876.

    Funny it came out brownish until I rubbed it and then was black. Only clue was the silver rim.

    "Young Vicky was hot"
    I thought this thread was going to have tips on a new pair of shorts, but that old coin is just as good
    Congrats!

    I thought it was going to be an actual pair of shorts with a sleeve for a lesch or something built in. I will take "hot Vicky" over that though. Congrats on the silver Canadian sir!
