Gold monster eats silver too!

Recommended Posts

This morning got out with my dog, and monster for a short hunt. We went to one of my favorite spots in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, where many emigrants including the Donner party have passed through. I have found lots of traces of the emigrants from oxen shoes to old metal safety pins, nails and old cans. I got to swinging at about 8am and on my first swing a target i heard. Couple of scratchs with my pick and in the morning light i could see round silver in the hole. When i picked it up i was so stoked to see my first 1916 mercury dime! I combed the area for more, but one was enough to keep me smiling for days. When i got home i realized i almost found a very valuable coin, if only it was minted in Denver. That's cool though now i can keep this sweet coin.:yesss:
