I have been praying to God for just one silver coin, and He heard my prayor today . I went to the depression shack actally it was a sawmill but i have been hunting this spot for over 10 years now and have never found one silver coin , I have found Indian pennys chines coins and wheats but today just off the old platforme next to the river in the mudd on the bank of the river i got a hit that i figured was another old shot shell but i dug around it just in case and when i was that shiny white i was just amazed a 1923 merc found on april 23 weard so God answered my prayor . I am very pleased with this find . I also found an old pocket knife and some big chunk of a cast iron stove

Nice find!!!
Your persistence finally paid off with some silver too.
Sounds like a very good site based on what you have found in the past and today.
When you get the Equinox, by all means pound all areas again with it... I believe you will be surprised and pleased at what else you find there!
Keep us posted on your future hunts there.

I have been praying to God for just one silver coin, and He heard my prayer today. I went to the depression shack actually it was a sawmill but I have been hunting this spot for over 10 years now and have never found one silver coin, I have found Indian pennies, Chinese coins, and Wheaties, but today just off the old platform next to the river in the mud on the bank of the river, I got a hit that I figured was another old shotshell, but I dug around it just in case and when I was that shiny white. I was just amazed, a 1923 merc found on April 23. Weird, so God answered my prayer. I am very pleased with this find. I also found an old pocket knife and some big chunk of a cast-iron stove
Congrats on your first silver. Mercs are beautiful coins.

Quite a adventure. Ten years that coin felt you scratching around there. Waiting, waiting, than when it all comes together, up you pried him. Bet Ole Merk could have used a pair of sunglasses. What are you going to do with him?
