    Weekend Hunt: Somebody Lost Their Marbles!

    Smittyman, Todd Lipe and I met on the bad side of town for breakfast on Saturday morning. We hit a couple of spots without much luck. Smittyman decided to call it a day, so Todd and I headed to one of our usual haunts.

    I was lucky enough to find a '41 Merc in one of my holes. I don't know how it got in there, as NONE of the other hundreds of holes that I dug had one in it! It was really nice to see the silver disc stuck to the bottom of the plug.

    I was also able to score a couple of marbles, they were very deep and barely audible... just a little peep...

    The last stop of the day was an old school. I managed to score the Moby Dick charm there. It's a recent drop, but silver none the less.

    YTD silver coin # 67.

    Thanks for looking and best of luck on your hunts!

    The marbles did not give a number, because they were too deep, but you could just barely hear a faint chirp, if you listen real hard...

    The Deus is more of a listening machine, you shouldn't worry about the numbers, an expert once told me...
