    First silver coin

    While trying out my new minelab equinox 600 today for the second time I found my first silver coin. 1943 mercury dime. I've just been searching the yard to try and get use to the machine and was excited to see it. The property was my great grandmas before I moved in so I was excited when I found it.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Very nice! I still have not found a silver coin, but I'm usually in the woods and swamps. On a side note, my brother lives in McBee. I'm over in Murrells Inlet.

    Congratulations on finding your first mercury dime! I own both the XP Deus and Minelab Equinox 600. I've been using the Equinox as my primary machine this year and have been "vacuuming" the old coins out of the ground. You're going to love that machine!

    Great grandmother era sounds like there could be more silver hiding in there! Congrats on a beauty of a silver!!! Very neat to think that your Great Granny could have lost that very coin!
