Default First war nickel along with injun and merc and weaties

Great hunt with my buddy “old gray ghost”,I named him that because he allways finds the first silver if not the only silver lol. He started day of with a 1936 Washington, then boom I followed up with a injun then a war nickel, then a merc, the merc I sold before I could get a pic of it. The guy from the payadvance place offered 10 bucks so I couldn’t turn it down . It was a 1945 not sure why he wanted it so bad but he did. Found three weaties one of them was a 1909.great day for the minelab xtera 505.

Hey nice score on that Merc and the rest...Mercs are a pretty coin, a found one is worth a lot more than $10 so the guy got a deal!

Great hunt, I am still waiting to dig up an Indian, and a Merc. I did find an Indian once, but it was in change, and for me that does not count, I want to dig it up!

Nice job! I can't belive you got 10$ for a merc... Its not even worth $2 in melt, about 3$ face value. Must have been AU or close to bring that much. Congrats !
