Default Found another wheat and another silver!

Had the day off from work and decided to go hunting. Found myself a 1944 Merc and it was my second target of the hunt. I also scored a 1920 wheat penny towards the end of the hunt. I was hunting one of the small parks near my house, but I cut the hunt short do to a couple of young kids constantly screaming while playing on the playground equipment. Kids will be kids, no big deal to me.
