    I walk the beach a lot with my metal detector. Best time is when they bring in the sand to build up the beach, never know what you might find. I found this penny and shark tooth bound together. I am guessing it is copper, if it was zinc, would have fallen apart. Am not able to see the date, just the memorial on the back. Thinking this is a one of a kind, wanted to share.

    Not worth much but it sure is neat to have it. Never seen anything quite like that.

    I wonder what the shark felt as it bit down on that coin? LOL

    Would like to clean it up, afraid it would fall apart.

    I'm worried about whose pocket it was in at the time!

    The shark was just testing it to see if it is real, you know, like the one in your avatar! :p:D;)

    @Mercy St John that find is unique! I wouldn't try cleaning it up (i.e. soaking) as doing so would destroy the synergy of that conglomeration. You might consider having it mounted in a holder, or encapsulated in Lucite, and made into a pendant.
