ID:	1168683 got the Merc an inch down ---then the coil passes over the tag. got home and called the owner, and Harvey is still kickin'. they had it made years ago and Harvey gets his tag back when I meet his human guardian on Tuesday. I am feelin' real good about this one. also got another $4 in clad back at the pounded park.

    virgin NY forest soil with major pine trees. 2 inches down, cleaned with gentle 10 second finger rub of wet baking soda to remove dirt. the clad came out like all clad----yucky stained. the merc still has mint luster and is likely EF-AU range. should sell for about $4- $5 on feebay

    just want to clarify, I am the short old guy with 2 legs and the dark shirt. what an amazing feeling to meet Harvey,a great dog and his great guardian Kevin and re-unite them with a lost item from 10 years past. Kevin offered and I humbly accepted a very nice finders gratuity. still get a fuzzy feeling thinking about this encounter. a super salute to FMERG for taking the time to shoot the photo.

    Not trying to give you a hard time but I am genuinely curious: What was so special about the tag? Why did the owner want it back?
