    It finally happened, a bucket lister completed !!

    Did some detecting this morning with my Racer2. Any time I'm able to get out anymore is great, and this hunt was (so I thought) shaping up to be an average hunt. I found six wheaties (1913S, 1923S, 1939S, 1941S, 1942S, and a no date), two Indian heads (1881 & 1905), a buffalo (1937), a toasted ?nickel?, a nice San Francisco dog tag, albeit some 54 years newer then the one I found a couple of weeks ago, a couple of pieces of .925 silver jewelry, two 1800's San Francisco Cable Car buttons (one from the Sutter Street Railroad with a train on it, the other from the Omnibus Cable Company, also with a train on it. Both would later merge into the San Francisco Cable Car system).

    I also found three silver coins, two mercs and one Washington quarter. I generally don't look at the dates on my coins until I get home, so this morning after I got back from detecting I was checking out my finds, and the one merc was in beautiful condition, but it's a common date 1942S, the silver Washington is a 1936 with a big rust blotch on the back.

    Then I looked at the last coin, a worn mercury dime, and I wasn't expecting much. I checked the date, 1916, OK, OK, I've found several 1916 mercs over the years and they've all been San Francisco or no mint marks. I muttered "come on, be a Denver mint mark" as I turned it over to check, and much to my amazement, IT'S A 1916D Mercury Dime!!

    I still cannot believe I finally bagged a 16D merc I wish it was in as good of condition as the 1942S merc, but we take what we can get

    Thanks for taking a look,

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    Brian, you dirty dog !! That's an $800 or-more coin. You paid off the Racer, eh ?

    Anytime coins go into the high-key range, and/or push $1K value, that should qualify as banner, eh ? I vote banner !

    It was fun to get out and hunt with you guys this morning ! My totals were 66 coins. Of which I had 10 wheats (no key dates), 3 buffalos (all worthless orange cr#p), 1 toasted V nickel (18??), a 1934 silver new zealand coin, a war nickel .

    Also got 2 gold rings. Although I'd rather take your dime any day ! Wanna trade ?

    Congrats on the juicy find. I would definitely send it in for grading regardless if you are keeping or selling. It's a nice clear D and I'm guessing it would be right around the $1k mark for value.

    You see, that will never happen to me, so that's why I bought one. The least I could have done, was buy one as nice as yours....congrats on a huge score!

    Brian, just did a search on recent completed/sold auctions @ Ebay. There's a few in similar shape to yours. Seems the going rate would be $700-ish. That's worth more than a lot of gold coins ! Big congratz again to you.

    Sweet find, congrats on that key date. That's a find of a lifetime. I'd still be stoked.

    I second the banner nomination and my vote is going in now.
