Hey YouTube, how are you? I am doing this to clarify. I’ve seen the comments in part 1 in part 2
saying Merrill let’s get a conclusion to this. Is it a 1943 or a 1945? As I’m sure
you can tell you know from the two (previous) videos I was really mixed on what the
final answer is. So let’s get into this. I even made a presentation for you based on the opinions of the three experts that I saw. I went to not one.. not two.. but three and they all
said the same thing; and that kind of eased my mind with this. Let’s look at
the fonts. So you have a very different font for 1945 than you have for 1943. The
three kind of goes down below the four here. And let’s take a look at my coin.
I’m sorry if that is very blurry. That, believe it or not, that’s the best
picture that I could get. Look at the top here. Look at how
flat that is and let’s compare that right over here. You have a flat top. The
thing that I saw; you see in here; it gets a little bit white and that could be
corrosion or it could have been a curve. But look at this look at how the four ends
here and the three ends right about here. So they’re kind of at the same level and
(look at this) it’s it’s not even a question. A 1943 penny goes down below the four and clearly you can see, right here, that’s not the case with the five. Lets take a look again.
Look real close at 1945. You can see that there’s some corrosion
that’s happening in here that really it makes it look like a three it could be a
loop that’s happening over in here. And that’s what I hoped but really there’s
nothing in here that’s a connector. And also the clearest case is that it is a
it’s even with the bottom of the four. So unfortunately, I’m not a millionaire.
But I guess that means that I just have to keep digging. I’ve gotten
a lot of stuff that has excited me over the years metal detecting and
it not that I would quit metal detecting if I found a 1943 penny.
It sure would finance me a little bit better, but you keep digging, you
keep hungry and that’s where I’m at. Right now I’m pretty satisfied
with the answer I got it from three different people. I saw a lot of people
saying that it was in 1943 in the comments and I still would like to hear
anybody’s case obviously if you think it’s a 43; but my conclusion came down to
the font which made me feel that it’s a 1945 penny instead of the Holy Grail of pennies. So again thank you for tuning in to this
series got a lot more metal detecting to come. I’ve got a pretty big tip and I’m
working on a video for that right now on a site in New York that is very historic
and really I went there a few times
it has really not been dug so stay tuned that’s gonna be coming out in the coming days I don’t know how I’m gonna release this. All at once
or in parts but stay tuned! There’s a lot more to come from this
channel; so thanks again!
