I have had bigger spills and I have seen others hit really nice spills, but so far this is the best spill I have hit
1944 S Washington, 1945 D war nickel, and a dateless buff. All out of the same hole.

This is the 3rd buff from this park and the 2nd silver Washington ever for me. This is also the first war nickel I have ever found.

I have found more gold rings than silver coins for some reason.

That’s a nice spill. The Buffalo nickels I have found are never as nice as that one. Congrats!
Funny thing is that is the worst buff I have ever found. I have been finding them one way or another since I was little and this is the first one that didn't have a date. Almost always 1913 for some reason.

Glad you have had luck with your Buffalo nickels, as they are such a cool coin. I have found maybe 10-15 of them, only a couple had dates and most were red and corroded - oh well.

Hopefully you hit a pile of them with excellent dates. That is my wish for you. (maybe a gold coin mixed in with them too)

Went out again to a different spot. Mostly dimes. One 1944 wheat penny.

Nice spill, congrats!
I just wish I had your problem of finding more gold than silver!
Thanks. It is definitely not a problem. I do wish that the two shipwreck rings I found would have been gold. That would have been a banner for sure.
