In the city of San Francisco there are at least a dozen of these high elevation parks with fantastic views of the city. I've been hunting them for years and have dug out some very nice finds. People from the
city have been coming up to these parks since the gold rush of the 1850's having picnics, and just walking to enjoy the views. My first good hit for the day was a buffalo nickel on the bottom of the hill in
a green grass area. Working my way to the top I got a shallow hit at 2 inches and out pops a 1859 seated liberty quarter! I was about 5 feet away from a cliff with a 50 foot drop!

Another awesome find for the day is this 1866 silver pin/badge from the Caledonian Club of San Francisco. A little research and I found out that it's a Scottish club that is still in existence.

Also dug out 3 buffalo nickels, a silver war nickel, a 1948 rosie dime, a silver brooch, and 2 Wheaties. These high elevation parks have paid off on numerous occasions, I'll still hunt them!
awesome finds and love that silver!! wtg

Hey there buddy, I would suggest that the larger silver brooch you found is also associated with the Scottish clan heraldry as the belt is a recurring theme

the larger brooch may be associated with Scottish clan heraldry judging by the belt imagery which appears on many clan badges. so maybe Caledonia club linked.
