Nice going finding all that silver and nickels. If there are not any stars (3) under the eagle, then it is a type one and dated 1916 or 17.

Roger, and from what I can tell there are no stars, so Type 1 and one of those dates....

Nice writeup and coins Buel, I can't find a slq and I'd take that silver German coin over the Nazi buckle I found ten years ago👍

And here I thought I was the only "long time" hunter without a SLQ...the German coin was definitely not expected!

Here is where we will think back to how that coin found its way over the "pond". Post WWII Soldier coming back home with a "war trophy" or something like that, shows his friends back in the PNW and then promptly loses it to Poseidon...IDK, makes for a good story

Cool stuff. Nice story and build up. Probably an S mark. How do you clean those salty sea coins?

TY, that German coin is incredible in how it got to the PNW

You really don't want to but you can try to do the aluminum foil, baking soda and super heated water trick to clean them.

Nice,a shame what salt water does to that sweet silver.BTW the German coin is a 34,that is the year that Hindenberg died and Hitler assumed total control and became the fuhrer ,the leader.
