Dear White's Electronics,

I detected my son in laws place up in Perronville, MI twice last week. I’ve detected his property at least 10 times before and he’s done it at least 20 times. The second time I found the usual clads and memorials and 4 wheaties. The first time I found 9 wheaties, 1 Indian cent, a silver war nickel and those 2 mercury dimes. I washed them all with water and saw the 1935 Merc with an S mint mark and thought….wow might be a good one? No such luck!

Then I washed the dirt off the other Merc and what do you know, the date is 1921 D Mercury dime. I checked it out on “photo grade” and I come up with a solid very fine condition!!! It was down in the dirt at 8 inches and the signal on my DFX was a little unstable but I dug it just in case. I’m really, really, really glad I did. I’ll put the obverse and reverse pictures on the Gallery picture section sometime today. The pictures are on page 4 of the treasure gallery. My site is yoopercoinshooters.com
