1895 Barber Quarter! / Early 1900s JI Case Pin / Silver Rings

Finds are from the past few hunts at area old parks and schools and one longer hunt with "Silver King". Coils used were the Tornado and stock coil.
The barber quarter is 1895 O. It was about 10 inches deep and on edge. I almost gave up on it when pin pointing. Glad I didn't. It was found today north surprisingly close to home at an old school site.
I think the recent rain helped the signal as the ground had good moisture.
The Philippine 20 Centavo coin is 1944 (75% silver coin).
Buffalo nickels are Dateless, 1920, 1937.
The JI Case Threshing Company pin was about 7 inches deep.
3 of the rings are Sterling Silver. The tiny padlock locket also has a Sterling stamp.
The old cap gun is a Dick Tracy cap gun. The lead toy is a frontiersman or trapper.
Also found was an old button with an Eagle on it. I am unsure of the age on that one.

Wow! It doesn't get much better than that FPD. Congrats on another Barber quarter and love the Philippine silver coin. The star for me is that JI Case pin.

Wow! Great finds and congrats! Without seeing the back and maker's mark of your general service button, it's hard to say on the date? At least Indian wars, possibly CW era.

Kind of make one wonder how many detectorists missed all these finds.

Thanks for the great comments guys!

Mike, the back of that button is completely corroded, there seems to be a rusty post or pin on the back side but I cant ID anything. I know blazer buttons rust up like that but this button seems very old.

Tony, there were a number of faint plugs at 2 of the sites I was at on Sunday where I got the Barber quarter and most of the other silver. They probably didn't have Minelabs or the patience I have.
I used 2 different old maps to research and zero in on that 2nd site.
