I've not had any time lately to detect because of taking care of my parents but I had a couple hours to go last Friday. This thing is awesome!! Date is 1857. How do I get the black off of it??

Fabulous find Ohio! Yes That one is on my bucket list. I'd try Q-tip swabbing it with a mild solution of ammonia. Most people and coin collectors would leave it as is though. Gives the coin more provenance!
