rescued these pretty ladies from the dirt today
hey guys, took the boys to my in laws campground for a quick hunt, after about an hr we pulled 3 wheats, an aluminum ring, this belt buckle looking thing, a key and a neat registration plate from 1925, i told my son what i always say when we see wheaties, i said "if theres wheat theres bound to be silver", the next 2 holes we pulled these beauties, a 1920 merc, and a 1944 merc, my 2nd and 3rd mercs in 2 days! we only left cause mother nature opened up the skies on us and we nearly drowned the ace350
