Old Park Afternoon. Sharp 1917 D Merc.
 
3 Attachment(s)
This afternoon I spent some time at an old park I have hunted A LOT. Was able to get over 2 silver dimes. One a really good looking oldie. 1917-D.

Went much slower today and gridded out the area that I've found the most silver from in the past. Both these dimes hit good only one direction. Sometimes you get lucky.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks! It's an Aluminum Utah State Tax token. 1 Mil.
1930s to 40s. It was worth 1/1000th of a dollar to pay fractional tax. I find a lot of them. For some reason, they sound too good, always fool me.

I like the Chuck E Cheese ones! These tax tokens are a dime a dozen. (Actually, they are 1.2 cents a dozen :lol:)

Good ear on the dimes, and that is a bunch of tokens. :cool:

Utah ground is fantastic on silver and wheat cents. I found 2 1926 S mercs and sold them for 100.00 each, a 1894 O dime for 100.00 and a 1914 D penny for 800.00.

Loved finding old coins there. Nice digs. Can't wait till I visit again

Nice going on those two nice Mercs ! Every 1917 Merc I have ever found has been well worn , a nice one like that is not an easy find ( at least not for me ) . Congrats !

Jamflicker 02-27-2021 11:48 PM

Congrats, love the old silvers when they are in great shape.

Ronald68 02-28-2021 02:01 AM

That 1917 is beautiful!! Congratulations on a great hunt!!!

Almann 02-28-2021 10:20 AM

Those are very nice Mercs ! Congrats on the great hunt 👍👍

Now that's an excellent choice to dig the high tone on a one way hit and retrieve a silver👍

Agreed

Congrats on the Mercs and making an old spot cough up a couple more SW. That 17 is pretty sweet. I got a nice 23 last month. A Merc is second only to a Walker in beauty imo. Boy you sure have cleaned up on those tax tokens. Glad to see you are still able to get out. Weather starting to break a little here and nun too soon. Good luck, Mark

JAK 02-28-2021 08:24 PM

Congrats on the couple of merc!

GroundSweeper 02-28-2021 10:56 PM

Man that is sharp, nice Merc duo Stiff, congrats!

Kansashunter 03-01-2021 09:42 AM

I experience this alot with the Equionox. Signals are not as sharp as what one would think with a silver coin. I dug a seated dime that was a zinc penny signal, like a 21-23 and very sketchy. I can only imagine how much is being missed.
