Nice one if you can gat a date.

I found an 1816 LC at a local ball field a few feet from the benches.
At a soccer field a got an 1850 Bank of Upper Canada half penny.

Both were farm fields a couple decades age and way back into the early 1700's so anything is possible.

Agree, no liquids. I had a few that were toasted and I tried a few different options from online posts. Everything made the coin almost black. Just dry it and toothpick it.
