I hunted the woods for 3 hours today. Only a couple of mosquitoes which was nice.
I found the Merc and about 10 feet away I got a faint signal and found this Half Dime about 6 inches down. Also found one wheatie.
Sure good to find some old silver. The HD looks like it was shot possibly.
My oldest coin to date. Too bad it is bent.
What rotten luck Eh. Best luck---Merf

That dime would make me cry, if found that. Cool find, maybe Annie Oakley shot it.
