Silver coin #33

6 Nov

At the recommendation of a member of the Friendly Metal Detecting forum, a hunting buddy and I went to a city nearby to hunt the city parks. I got there almost at nine in the morning and stayed until eleven. In that time I stayed in a relatively small area of this big city park and found eight wheat cents, the earliest being a 1925, and a 1918 Mercury dime. This dime makes silver coin #33 for the year. The park, we were told, has been open for as long as the city has been there. It is a large park and we will definitely go back.

My oldest Mercury dime to date

I used my Garrett Ace 250 for this hunt since my At Pro is boxed and ready to be shipped away for repairs.
