My oldest Silver coin to date found Thursday Afternoon
Went to a park we have been hitting for the last year and a half. This is one of the oldest if not "the" oldest park in the city of Syracuse. First good target of the day was a 1944D Mercury Dime. Next was my oldest silver coin to date, a 1886 Canadian Dime. Finally, just before dark I found the 1936 Mercury Dime and the 1946 Wheat Cent. I am still stoked.
The silver always comes out dark in this park...Must be the heavy fertilizers used.
