    Three Century coins

    Returned to the place I hit the last 2 weeks and managed a few nice finds. This place has given up some really sharp early Mercury's and todays 1919 was probably the nicest of the bunch. Also picked up a nice Barber Dime and another Merc. Century coins were a 1886 Indian a 1914 Barber Dime and the 1919 Merc. Also picked up a decent looking 1931 Wheatie. got $6.33 in gas money and some silver bling. Ground still thawed so may have some more time to hunt. Wisconsin Digger

    Great coins for sure! You found a nice spot that has been pretty good to you. The ground in SE Michigan is not frozen but we got 7-10 inches of snow last week and half of it is still here. Hope to get out again this year. Congrats!

    Great work. Nice spot for sure! Hoping to get out this weekend. Been traveling too much and weather hasn't cooperated when I had the time.

    So many quarters , and sweet old silver, I hope there is lots of ground left to cover there! Ironically, as kids we used to pray to St Anthony to find things we lost.
