Outstanding find!!

Last summer there was a big park demo project in our area and one evening I dug a couple of mercs, silver washington, two IHPs, two buffalos, and six wheaties. I didn't think much about the mercs, but the next morning as I was checking the coins I saw the 1916 date on the merc. I've found several 1916 mercs in the past, even a couple of 1916 barber dimes, but none of the mercs were Denver. This one, I said my little detecting gods prayer (please let this be a Denver mint mark!!) as I flipped it over, and to my astonishment it was in fact a Denver mint mark, so I can share your joy in finding such a difficult to find coin !!! A photo of mine made it into last years W&E Treasure Magazines best fines section

Congrats and hh,
Cal
