Found more silver than I thought

Sorry guys...I made a mistake and found two silver targets yesterday, not just that Barber.,2450113

This was found first, low to mid 20's, 5 tones but no flutey sound, had a pretty clean top but had what I thought was rusted iron filling the back.
At best I thought it was an old button with some silver wash.
I just cleaned and tested it.
That iron was just compacted crusty black dirt and it all washed away.
The inside was as clean as the top so I tested it on a stone with a scratch test and also cut into it deep to get past the surface into any core metal in case it was just plated.
Nope...tests as solid silver 100%.
The cap off of an old two piece button or the cap piece off of something else.
Whatever...silver is silver.
