    1916 merc - like new (almost)

    About a month ago,I decided to hit one of my heavily worked over spots again and got a surprise! Towards the end of the hunt, there was a light silver reading at about 9" deep. So I dug very carefully and in the dirt that had been scooped out of the hole, there was a nice silver edge showing. The coin had dirt covering it so as not to show what it was, so I took it home to be washed. It so happened that the front of the dime showed first, 1916! on a merc that was in very good shape. Now that was exciting until the back was washed and revealed no mint mark. I am still thrilled to find one in that good of shape! Hope you enjoy the coin. HH

    Nice silver.
    I knew a man who rode his horse backwards, because seeing where he has been was much less scary than seeing where he was going.
