A Few Hard to Find Mercs

Finding silver has really slowed down for me here.  Most silvers are gone at my sites, so I decided to work on my techniques and see what I’ve missed.  I was surprised to find four Mercury dimes and one was only four inches deep.  The difference was they were mixed in with a lot of trash (I mean a lot!).  Only a crawling swing speed would allow a tiny squeak of silver and a brief glint of a silver number.  I dug a lot more nails doing this too, but it shows there is still silver there.  I’m still not a 100% confident I’m finding all the large silvers.  I refuse to believe all the deep large silvers have been found.  I may be proven wrong, but I haven’t found many large silvers mixed in with trash like silver dimes.  Since the trash affected dimes ring up really off on sound and numbers, I think the large silver does too.  If any one has suggestions, I’m willing to listen.  Best of luck and happy hunting………
