    I envy and hate you all at the same time!

    Keep em coming,

    Dave
    Thanks Dave. I appreciate it. It's all about fun for me. I would have been happy digging just one keeper from that pounded place. It's a good thing too...because I only got the sweet Merc and one lonely wheatie from there

    Bryce , There is the silver lining to the fact that you have hunted to death all your local parks, causing you to go

    on frequent road trips out of area , allowing you to score the merc of all mercs, and the choice silver rings and

    other coins . Isn't it amazing what life surprises us with when we least expect it ? Great story ! Nice to see you

    getting stoked up again my friend . BANNER !!! Argentium.

    Bryce,

    That only could happen to the 'silverfreak'! Great story, throwing a '16-D merc back and forth... Even better that you had a couple of buddies with you!

    Wow man, that is one hell of a nice coin. I dont care how worn it is, its gorgeous. I absolutly loved your story, thank you for such a nice long descriptive post. After reading about your hunts, I am in awe of the patience and persistence you exhibit. If I am ever in your neck of the woods, I would love the opportunity to follow you for a day just to watch you work and listen to those iffy signals. I feel like you have mastered your machine, and I stand in awe of your skill and results. Congratulations on an outstanding hunt and a suberb find.
