    A hair brooch from 1890's era "ghost town"?

    Found this today and pretty excited! Not sure of the exact time period, but this was a town in the 1890's and now a park. Pretty good condition, anyone have an idea on age/timeframe of this item??

    It's called a bar brooch. Worn on the collar. Late Victorian up to maybe 1910's.
