    Quick city hunt, first silver, first silver ring

    Eric (Washingtonian) and myself headed out to the city to hit up a couple sidewalks he’d scoped out.

    We were hunting outside an old apartment building that had been up since the 1920s. I had found a couple of wheats, which meant the ground was still old. I got a sharp 84 on the AT pro, which I figured was a clad dime. Well, I nearly had a heart attack when I popped the plug and stared at the shiniest coin I’d ever seen in a hole before.

    My first silver! Man I was hyped. 1918-S merc, and in pretty good shape too for 101 years old!

    Later, I dug a 79 signal, and was again surprised when I found half a sterling ring. Try as I might, I couldn’t find the other half :/

    Good luck out there today!

    A truly great Merc, Patrick. If this was in a plug, where did the scratches come from? Hope you didn't add them.

    Sweet coin put it in a nice coin holder looks like that ring may have been hit by a lawn mower I find many like that. Eric is the guy to learn from he is on his game for sure. Well done
