    Beautiful day, beautiful Merc...

    Quick hunt today. Maybe 45 minutes before heading to my job site. Got some quick clad and then a faint mid-80s right along the curb side....(an area that's done great for me!) dug a nice deep plug and there she was: 1945-S Mercury dime! Nice condition. HH everyone! Go get some!!!

    You're right about that. Sorry if that sounded snide. Well thank you!! You'll get that first one soon enough. The park I found it in I could NOT find a Merc there forever. Had found a few before at other spots but not at my main place I've been hunting. Finally a couple of weeks ago, I got a 1942 and I was so happy that I got one at the park! A friend told me that once the first one comes, they'll come easy from there on out! And he was right: last week I dug my second Merc at the park and it turns out to be a key date! 1921-D. Then today my third. Funny how that works good luck bud! You'll get her sooner or later

    No worries.. not snide at all. I always seem to go out and find a pocket full of clad just shy of the silver dates and not to excited about it..

    Then I see someone post that there last three hunts they can't find a single coin of any date; it just reminds me that even though I was not overly excited; someone else may see the clad and get motivated to keep looking.

    I love seeing those silver coins..

    Danny..

    Congratulations on the Mercury. There is nothing mediocre about finding silver, it always brightens my day! Post away!

    Just an fyi.... There are varieties on the 45 S's.... Small and large mint marks. I think they call the one Micro... I do not think there is a difference in 'value' though if thats your thing...

    Great find... I love Mercury dimes!
    Always Happy Hunting... and when finding is involved...

    [ I always seem to go out and find a pocket full of clad just shy of the silver dates and not to excited about it.. ]

    I am in the same boat. Last weekend I found a 66 quarter. During the Xmas break I hunted an elementary school that has been there since the late 60's.
    In 3 days around 8 hours of hunting I found about 350 coins. No silver but I had at least 5 1965 dimes probably around 25 or 30 coins from the 60's but not one silver?
    My detector is picking up about 6" sometimes 7". It is a whites mxt and I am in sandy florida hunting. Is the silver hunted out or down below 8" I found a merc the other day
    at 7". No problem picking it up. I am hunting an old abandoned house and am finding a few wheats and a war nickel but no silver? The mxt seems to be very accurate I don't dig much below 7" I have a dd eclipse coil and a 12" coil and I don't seem to get much more depth with the larger coil maybe an inch? The bigger coil definitely has constant chatter and multiple hits.
    I am trying to figure out if I need to find a better place to hunt or get a better detector?

    Mike
