    Weekend finds!

    Went hunting this past weekend with some hunting buddies. Got a 1963-D Rosie at 3 inches on Saturday <: and a real nice 1939 Merc at 7 inches on Monday afternoon. Also got 5 Wheaties, the oldest being 1928, plus 123 clad coins totaling $9.74. I also used my SunRay X-5 five inch coil and in one hour I broke my old nickel record of 12 with a new one of 16. Happy hunting to all!

    WOW ! That Merc looks like it's in mint state. It's flawless. Just goes to show you, it doesn't have to be real old silver to be worth a lot. Just as long s it's in Great shape.

    That is a beautiful 39 dime. Congrats!!!! Don't forget to check that Wisconsin quarter to see if it has the extra leaf on the corn. Could be big bucks too.
