Super Old Silver with a Regal looking bust, Luvvit !!
Before donating I'd recommend getting some confirmation it will be
displayed rather than hidden in a folder, sold off or disappearing.
Been there, done that....
Congrats on a Great Find. Banner Vote from Me!
Get a better pic of that obverse side in your post.

Thinking it should be banner as well.

Honestly, first thing I thought of when I read the title, was a bar-related joke.
Polish? South Jersey?
It's a natural set-up!
