Default Snowstorm Eve Quickie

Big storm coming with up to a foot of snow. Ground still frozen and some snow left from the last one. I had a bad itch to go metal detecting so once it hit 32 and I had finished pruning trees, inspecting the generator, and all the other stuff you do get ready for storm I had about an hour left for an elementary school.
Along with 60+ cents in clad a 1944 wheaty, a 1982 diecast Darth Vader, a lead ball (musket ball?) and an 18 karat gold plated ring. My sixth ring from this school with three of them being good ones.
The Darth Vader is actually collectible and has just a little value

That's a musket ball 100% you can see the seam and spur.
