The last few weeks I spend putting a new piston and rings in my 4 wheeler. So after getting some work done Saturday morning I decided to take it on a test drive to a ghost town up one of the canyons close by. Packed along the Deus 9" hf coil and Simplex with the 5 x 10 coil.

Started out with Deus and loaded up a program I created for ghost towns. I only had a couple of hours so the Simplex never made it out of it's case. About half way through the hunt I was looking around a foundation with a sage brush growing close by it. There were a few pieces of tin and a bottle cap laying by the sage brush so I kicked them aside. Deus gave me a great 96 signal and my initial thought was more tin, but the signal was too clean. So then I'm thinking half dollar. Got the pinpointer out and pushed through the dirt to finally see a round disc about the size of a quarter. Turned out to be an aluminum token.

Didn't realize what I had until I got home. Front side reads Golden Gate Saloon Mercur, Utah. Back side is good for 5 cents in trade. Book value $500-1000. Dang best token I've ever found.

Andrew,

That is an awesome token! Congrats!

I spent many nights camping in Mercur when I was a kid on Boy Scout trips. All long gone now.
