Hit my first Mercury Dime today!

I've never had a ton of luck with coins but landed on this guy about 1" deep. First good digging rush in a while.

Nice!

When I got my Musketeer one of the first coins I found was a "Merc". In my own yard! Wow! I thought. This is GREAT!

Was about 10 years until number two. :BangHead:

One of the best looking US coins IMHO. Female Liberty representing Freedom of Thought - not Mercury (a guy). But "Merc" stuck.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

What a thrill that must have been. A very nice Merc. Congratulations 👍

What a Great looking Merc for being 98. Truly one of the coins you'll remember for times to come and to be of great beauty just makes it . . .

You fill in the rest. Congrats
