Default A Clad Haul, 2 Silvers, And a Heart stopper

We hunted an old high school field and dug a boatload of clad.......37 pennies, 3 nickels, 66 dimes, and 59 quarters.....165 coins worth $21.87. We also dug two silvers, a 1950 Quarter and a small, thin sterling ring. One target was a junk metal heart shaped charm that at first glance in the hole looked like gold. No such luck
