Default Before the dozers arrive...

There is an area of town that is about to be demolished due to a redirection of a road nearby. In the path of this destruction is a small park that is directly across the street from some student apartments. I have hunted the area before, but only to cherry pick. I figured now is a good time to dig everything before the area is disturbed and anything there is lost. Not much of interest so far except for this one item. A nice silver pin/broach. About 4 inches long with a turquoise center stone. The only marking I can make out on the back is an S, but there is no question if it is silver or not.
