Went out to the local park hunting today with my daughter, who received a Garrett ACE 150 for Christmas. Pulled our first silver coin, a lovely 1926 Mercury dime!
I am hooked!

That’s a great 1st silver coin! It took me a year and a half to get my first merc. Continued good hunting!

That’s a great first silver coin. Be sure to put it aside in a nice case, it’s a memory that you and your daughter will share for years to come.

Thanks, everyone. My daughters are 6 and 10, and we went out together this afternoon. They were thrilled when this dime popped up, tired of all the pull tabs and corroded pennies!
My friend and his son were there, too. And I think we have another that is "hooked." We played in that park as kids, and so did our own parents. Nice to think this merc lay there the whole time without any of us knowing.
Probably more down there. I've got to go dig it all up!

Congrats! Research is key when looking for the old stuff and there’s always goodies in old plowed farm fields. Good luck and happy hunting!
