    Lead Toy Soldier Spill Plus Silver

    I went out this morning. It was below freezing all day. The first spot was just too cold and windy, I retreated to the truck after 15 minutes. I drove around a little bit, and ended up at the latest Honey Hole. It has some sheltered sunny areas, and I stuck to those.

    Here is a picture of some classic mid-century Southern relics, costume jewelry, aluminum advertising thimble and Rebel flag lapel pin.

    I found this quarter sized coin. Some cleaning revealed a 1955 South African coin. It’s slightly domed, maybe a lawnmower encounter.

    I managed to score a dozen wheaties, and two war nickels.

    I have found a couple of lead toys. I really like them. So it pains me greatly to tell you that I destroyed the best lead toy soldier, I’ve ever found. Sorry Subterranean.

    I was detecting along, trying to find silver coins, but digging it all. I got a signal, and this lead toy soldier came out, when I rechecked the hole, the base was there.

    Two feet away I got a similar but larger signal. Obviously I don’t know what I’m doing because I speared it with the shovel. I almost cried when I realized what I did.

    Two more feet, and another signal. I was super careful this time, however, this one came out in pieces. Pre-broken, is the term.

    Three lead toy soldiers in a 10’ x 10’ area. Here is a pic of all the pieces.

    Some kid suffered a lead toy soldier spill. It was a really bad day for him.

    Thanks for looking and good luck on your hunts.

    That happens to the best of us. You found some cool stuff today.
    It was -1 here this morning, they are calling for lows in the teens and single digits for the rest of this week. Our ground is now like concrete but it shouldn't last too long.
    Glad you were able to get out and start the new year with a good hunt.

    It happens, I know, but it sure would have been nice to have that WW1 dough boy intact. Oh well, if that’s my biggest problem, then I don’t have any problems.

    Wishing you the very best in 2018.

    Be safe in the cold. Spring time will be here before you know it.

    Tom those are really cool and that they are all humpty dumpty you could put them back together for nice display pieces. I like winter detecting in the woods we just have to much snow that seems to stay for weeks then we get dumped on again. Winter to me is like someone coming into your living room and dimming the lights and turning the heat down and then grounding you for weeks at a time!!!!!Thanks for posting your finds stay safe and warm out there my friend.From the condition of those soldiers Id say ww2 caualties
    This is an addiction!!! There is no cure!!! And it only gets worse!!!!! KEEP PLUGGIN AWAY!!!!!!!!!!
