My greatest coin spill ever

Saturday I found this absolutely beautiful silver half.
But on Sunday only a short distance away I came upon a massive coin spill. I was using a nox 800 and it was jumping all over the place. I thought it was can slaw but I dug it anyway.
The hole produced 26 memorials, 23 Wheaties, 2 nickels, 3 Rosie's, and 1 Merc 1941.
The oldest Wheatie was 1914.
It took me 20 minutes to extract all the coins. In the end I was down 12 inches.

The composition of that spill is kind of mystifying. Are you counting the 51 Canadian cent in with the Memorials? If separate, it makes for a roll of cents, otherwise 49 pennies. (Still a possible roll)

Almost a 50, 50, split between Memorials and Wheats, which seems kind of strange since the coins seemingly had to have been lost of buried after 1976. And then, why only 4 dimes? More interesting, though, the dimes being all silver when the spill was lost or buried after 1976.

What type pf location were the coins found. This is one of those times you wish those coins could talk. Seems like there could be a tale there. Again, good job! HH jim tn

The spill was in a large park on the edge of grass and woods. It is at the top of a large hill where sledding took place up to 1950. It was called Suicide Hill because it was so dangerous.
I'm thinking the 1976 coin doesn't belong. It was just there.

The 76 not belonging makes more sense. Whatever, heck of a spill. HH jim tn
