    My first Merc!!

    Found my first Mercury dime today and couldn't be happier! I keep seeing on the posts here that talk about digging a jumpy signal that results in silver. That is exactly what happened. I had a real jumpy signal on my AT Pro and decided to dig it. Out pops a shiny coin. I turn it over and there she is!

    About 3-4 inches deep. Signal was jumping from high 40's to 70's with an 80 every once in awhile. Lot of nails and junk on this lot so I was skeptical of anything good. Now I need to go back and dig more of the signals I've passed on in the past few trips.

    Wow, you had a real mix.
    With the 80 popping up rarely, but it was the true reading.

    Good instincts digging that one.
