    Mercury Dime (pre-war I'm thinking 1937). It was the first coin I found in my own yard the first time I took my Musketeer Advantage out. "Hot damn" thought I. "This is one hot machine!"

    Five years later I found my next silver coin.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    1902 Barber dime with my Compass Judge II. Immediately drove home to check my coin book to discover it was worth a whopping .65c.
