    Back to Back Silver Days! 1784 1/2 Real and 1941 Mercury Dime!

    Yesterday, I found a 1784 Carolus III 1/2 Real (see "What is it?" forum) and now today I found a 1941 Merc! The 1/2 Real is pretty beat, but the Merc looks to be in very nice condition.

    Now I know most of you guys find silver on back to back days all the time, but this was a first for me. What's really amazing is that I found the Merc about 50 feet from where I dug the 1/2 Real! Finding two silvers in the same area that are 157 years apart has got to be a rare occurrence!

    Here's a couple of pics:

    Thanks guys! I doubt if I can pull off a three day silver streak, since it's going to rain here tomorrow. But you never know...

    Thanks for all the great comments! Going to be tough to pull off a trifecta. Just got a dusting of snow and it's 36 degrees out! I've still got a few hours before it's dark, though. Might give it a shot in a hour or so. Not giving up yet!

    SeekerMD, Thanks! I couldn't shoot for the trifecta today, though. An inch of snow and 36 degree weather did me in. Going to be decent on Sunday, so maybe I'll keep up the good luck then. Just have to get home by 3 PM to watch the Patriots/Broncos game!
