Default Token "spill"

Is there such a thing as a token spill? I may have found one today. Searched an old baseball field that goes back to 1960 hoping for silver. Wasn't meant to be but I did find several dollars in clad. Came across a 3 foot by 3 foot area behind the old backstop and pulled all these tokens that I'm guessing are from the 80s. A Dairy Queen sundae, 1984 Chuck E Cheese, a Seattle bus token and $7 in car wash tokens from an out of business car wash. Kind of an odd find but it sure sounded like I hit the jackpot for a few seconds.

A whole "token collection" in one outing. Unusual, but veddy interesting, Kev. Next spill will be 1880's silver... !

Someone may have been trying to rip off the car wash with a Chuckie token. Haha.

I ask myself the same thing last year when I dug a broken jar of 120 Mo. state tax tokens from the late 1920 and 30,s. Congrats on the finds. Tokens are always cool
