Default Does this count as 1 or 4 silvers?

Went for a short hunt around an old grocery store and im keeping the silver streak alive, 3rd hunt in a row. But the real question is does this count as 4 silver coins? Or one silver find? My vote is for 4 coins
3.01 in clad and 4 wheaties. I may have a permission lined up for this week at a home built around 1900s.

I believe those are silver washed coins. I've found some similar to those in both gold and silver wash. Even so, it's an excellent find and not common at all

Thanks all, 4 coins it is. Was looking and they are only 72% silver, not as good as the us 90%. It is always a suprize pulling foreign coins out of the ground.

Oh yeah! Four silvers all day long; *but with an asterisk.
That is a really nice find! Never seen coins linked that way before.

I already want to go back, i think it was a bracelet, and it would take another 20 to finish. My guess, it broke and they lost a small part of it. It was at least 7" deep and all the coins on edge.

The linkage you took off is probably sterling silver.
