My first year

by Robbie

Hey Frank
Thankyou for your site and your teachings.I`ve been detecting for almost a year,and have used your tectniqes to increase my finds.My oldest coin I`ve found is a 1827 large U.S cent.It was so crusted that I used your electrol methed but I still had to polish using a copper cream to bring back the date.I know that I may have devalued this now $20 penny,but I dont plan to sell,it`s just a piece that I`ll someday pass on to my kids.

Thanks Robbie!

Robbie, thanks for posting. I'm glad there was some way that I could help you.

No, you should not have cleaned that coin like you did. But, live and learn, right?

The more times you get out there, the better you'll get at finding stuff. You need to learn your detector, and practice. Dig as much junk as you can, because the more junk you dig, the more great finds you'll end up with.

Let us know what you find in the future, and if you ever need help, just email me at

Thanks again Robbie!
