Sorry, SoOregonMd - I realized after the fact that my post above made it sound like we were starting a third time...we're still just on the second round, I was just trying to re-invite the other folks to guess again who might not have noticed we had a restart so quickly. Let's keep "1944 D US Dime" as your 2nd round guess since it was the first new entry you made.

Sorry for the confusion!

Well, heck! This is a tough one. Best odds would be a common silver dig, but then you go pop a QUAR. DOL. right away! So many choices! I dunno...1906 US Barber dime? For the tiebreaker, I'll say S mint mark, since you have a history of finding the unusual.

You should have guessed a 1700s 8 Reales

Congrats on the war nick, though!

Thanks to everyone who is participating! No silver today...just junk and clad. I’ll be back at it again tomorrow though!

Good luck, everyone!

Sorry I didn't catch this earlier, Smirk...but Usa already guessed the 1943 Merc dime for the second round (post #32). Don't worry, you're free to pick a different silver coin if you want

We Have A Winner!!!

Just dug silver at a local park....and something a little more reasonable than a seated quarter this time! Not that I'm complaining...no offense, but I'd have been happy to start digging boat loads of reales and half-dimes and extend this contest for an eternity!!

I just got a hard shallow hit in the copper penny range, cut a shallow plug expecting a memorial, and ended up being surprised by a shallow Wheatie...but the real surprise was on rescanning the hole and realizing there was more!! And that's when I popped out a 1942 Merc, no mint mark!!

I'm still out hunting, and only did a quick look through the list, but it looks like Stiffwrists is our lucky winner!! I'll confirm later, and PM for shipping info! Congrats Stiffwrists...a fitting prize to celebrate your reaching 100 silvers earlier this week! :thumbs up:
