Way to go! Always great to find a fresh site to hunt.

I enjoy finding Buffalo Nickels more than other varieties because they have been the more difficult Nickel coins for me to find the past 35 years, and I like their design.

11 Wheat-back Cents and all the rest but not one modern Memorial Cent? Now that makes a site enjoyable, too. thumbs up

2 'silver' War Nickels also keeps your hopes up to find 'real' silver coins (those that have a majority of silver content, like Half-Dimes, Dimes, Quarters, Halves and Dollars), but since the 'WWII era Nickels were made from 56% Copper, 35% Silver and 9% Manganese I have never considered them to qualify as a 'real' Silver US Coin.

8 Trade Tokens will always get my interest up, too. They have their own 'personality' relative to an era or a location.

3 'real' Silver Coins, the 2 Mercury Dimes and Washington Quarter, would be the things that would really spark my interest in revisiting any site a few times. Can't ever get too much of it in one outing.

Best of success to you on your next re-hunts of that site. I enjoy my similar-performing MX-7 w/6½" Concentric coil for those types of sites and feel the MX-Sport and MX-7 are examples of some better steps forward from White's in recent years. I'm curious if this was a private property access or if you chanced upon a rewarding and overlooked pubic access location?

Thanks for the reply, and no, I don't want to inquire just where the site is.
