Default Silver Pocket spill!!

My 13 year old son was detecting near an old sidewalk and my 9 year old son was with him helping out. I was at the end of the driveway when suddenly my 9 yr old comes running over and says they found a pocket spill and there is silver!!!

I ask what kind of silver and he tells me a dime and a 50 cent coin that he thinks is silver, but that there are coins everywhere!!! Knowing how excited he can get I assume there is a bit of exaggerating going on.

Well, they pulled 14 coins out of the hole and 7 were silver!!
