Streak of 's' mint silvers
Quote this message in a reply
Until yesterday I had never dug a San Fran mint silver, and now I've dug 3.  Yesterday I pulled a really worn 1920-s merc (barely has any of the mint mark left) and a 1947-s Rosie.  Rounded out the hunt with another rosie, a trolley token (second one like this...they ring up like indians), and a very thin .925 ring.  Today I dug a 1912-s Barber dime and a 1904 injun.  Ran into Jerry out there...hope you had some good luck!
