I got in a short hunt at a local church that is undergoing a major renovation. Most is fenced off for the construction but the corners are open. My first silver in a few hunts, a well worn ‘41 quarter. six wheaties, two buttons, a foil pack and 87 cents in clad. The great seal button looks older...does anyone have a date range? Not great photos but the best I can with my limited eyesight.

The Great Seal button was started in 1902. They are still in use today. There are some slight differences between the WW1 and WW11 buttons. That is a nice find.

Thanks! If I can soak off some more of the crud I might be able to see the makers information better.
