First silver, a 1926 Mercury dime!

Took my daughter to the local park on my last day of vacation to use our new toy. Pleasantly surprised to find our first silver coin, a nice looking 1926 Mercury dime! Nestled beneath the roots of a large tree for probably the last 75 years or so.

I'm hooked.

    Always nice to see those little white discs come out of the ground

    My first Merc was a 24-P found at a local park. Definitely hooked me too. Good luck

  • Congratulations on a wonderful find.
