And I had no idea it was a key date untill I text my hunting buddies Silver Bullet and Michdig who couldn't make it out there today.....good thing too I might of lost out on this one, Michdig let me know it was a key date. Wow! some of those are worth a bit of dough.
This link should bring up the SOLD 1921 D mercs on ebay.

I agree that you have a coin that's worth getting graded even if you don't plan to sell it any time soon.

If you decide to still do that, please also show it to a local coin dealer or two. Protect it by placing in a 2x2 mount at least, to keep anyone you show it to from rubbing or damaging it.
No, my mistake jimther, I meant a Coin Shoppe,(actual name of the place). It is in a holder now.

Thanks jruckman, I think I will get it graded some day, but for now I'll just get a ball park figure at the coin dealer place.

Thanks for the link ToySoldier, never knew there were so many 1921 D merc's for sale. Since this is my first key date coin I think I will probably keep it for a while. Some day I will get it graded.

Was offered 100 for one but kept it. Don't know why because it's in a box in the basement. Might get rid of a bunch of coins to purchase a new Minelab Gpx 5000.

100 for one! If you find it I would like to see a pic of it if you don't mind.
That Gpx 5000 is an expensive little toy, WOW! and heavy too!
