Seriously, Terry is just the nicest guy you would ever want to meet and not a selfish bone in his body, I have learned so much from him both in person and via e-mails and his posts.

I don't know if the forum has an award for the detectorist of the month...heck make that the year, if they do I nominate him with no reservations.

I had a couple serious collectors look at it, they seem to agree closely to what you said, both said VG08 for the front and almost Fine for reverse....and they said $1500.
On another forum a guy said $500, and I started laughing, didn't even respond
On ebay, ones worn almost smooth bring $400-500. I have NO intention of ever selling it. I did some research on past values of the 16D in VG condition, in 1998 it was worth $1,000 in VG, in 2011 VG is around $1,600......so looks to be a coin that goes up, up, up....I'm keeping it safely in my safety deposit box, unless I am starving, I'm not selling it

Default Which would I rather?

Okay my friend, as you know I had a big score on the PA Daily Lottery the other day, as well as a bookie play which equalled $2940 total..so I'm looking at your incredible find and I'm saying which would I rather??? Well, not really, because I pocketed some big cash, and all you really got right now is a little stinking Dime!!! What is really cool, is way back a long time ago, you friended me here on the FMDF..I now get to tell everyone I know,..I am friends with a fella who scooped up a 1916D Mercury Dime. You are the Man..you are.
