    Silver always comes out black but Nickles and Gold always look perfect !
    Mercs are 1940, 1942, 1943D and the Rosie 1962D
    The Buff is 1927 and Gold Ring tested 12k.
    The 1940 was in this plastic pouch:

    Congrats on the gold ring! It is beautiful. It's funny how nickels and cents come out of the water looking shiny. I've seen that in water detecting videos before.

    I also find it fascinating that one of the Mercury Dimes was in a plastic coin purse. Pretty cool!

    Lifetime totals:
    9 Large Cents, 392 Indian Heads, 2 Two Cent Pieces, 1 Capped Bust Half Dime, 1 Seated Half Dime, 10 Shield Nickels, 67 V Nickels, 122 Buffalo Nickels, 31 War Nickels, 16 Seated Dimes, 128 Barber Dimes, 384 Mercury Dimes, 238 Rosies, 4 Seated Quarters, 15 Barber Quarters, 17 Standing Liberty Quarters, 85 Silver Washingtons, 1 Seated Half, 3 Barber Halves, 16 Walking Liberty Halves

    Nice finds. I forgot what gold looks like!! Water levels are still high. The wheats sometimes comes out new but then turns orange after an hour!! Thatís crazy you got that in that wallet. I found one preserved in the hardpack also but was empty! Congrats on the old yellow
