    yeah, that looks like a typical coin i find at the beach that has been in the sand for decades. Note how the rim is partly gone. They slowly get eaten away by the salty wet environment. I have found some dimes as thin as a piece of paper and about 1/2 the diameter of a new coin.

    That is a keeper for me. I like the way the BU coins look. As stated above Beat Up.
