coin spill and "medal"

Hunting the woods again at a park. The Jamestown tercentennial medal from 1907 was a loud signal like a copper cent. Not too deep. I found some similar pieces online, but the reverse side of mine is in bad shape, can't make out the picture. The coin spill was one of those crazy signals, I found the Jefferson, then a buffalo, then five wheats. Hoping for a silver, but no luck. The nickels are in pretty good shape, usually my nickels are badly corroded. No date on the buffalo. The wheats were 1946, 1948, 1950D, 1953, and 1956. A couple clad coins and lots of trash, especially the aluminum lids for beer cans.
