Default One lonely Merc today

Went out with my daughter today. We hunted a field near an 1860 house. Nothing good in the field, but I did pull this nice Merc from the yard. Itís the first and oldest coin from the yard of the house. This place has given up much older coins, but not by the house.

Congrats to you and the daughter Erik on Merc.. Second only to the Walker in terms of beauty. I love finding them. Sounds like you may have to give the yard a little more attention. Good luck, Mark
