Default a silver first

Two hunts last week. The silver quarter isn't the first I've found, but it is the first silver coin I've found at a school. I go through stretches thinking schools can be a complete waste of time for older targets. Both hunts were at the same school location. Theres been a school there since the early 1900's but before that it was all open farm land. I think the plated fork and suspender clip date to that range.

Anyone have an idea on the forks makers mark?

Thanks for looking, hope you're all getting out or at least not going stir crazy.

Great finds man, and the relics definitely look old! We have found coppers and spanish silver in modern schoolyards up here. Doesn't matter what is there now, only what WAS there. Keep up the good work!
