    Toy Soldier Pieces

    I went out with Tnetters KurtStuben & Smittyman today. It was chilly but sunny at the Honey Hole

    Here is the obligatory pic of Smittyman. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    I have been digging almost all of the targets lately. I really want to dig more gold rings. I dug a ton of pulltabs and junk. I won’t tell you Kurt got a gold ring today. All I got was Jefferson nickels.

    I found an oil lamp. Here is the adjustment knob, with an 1897 patent date on it.

    When I first cleaned this, I swear I saw wheat on it. I don’t see it anymore. It weighs 2.9 grams, same as a wheatie. I suspect some kid put Mr. Lincoln on the railroad tracks. I put that coin in there for scale.

    I really like lead toy soldiers, so it hurts when I always seem to find them in pieces. This site has given up 8 partial lead toy figures.

    Here is a leg and foot that came from the same hole.

    I did manage to find this relatively intact knight, with JAPAN across his back. Coin, again for scale. It’s a small figure.

    Here is pic of all of the lead I found today. I cleaned the tag. I believe it is an old phone pole tag. We have found several of them on this site.

    hey Tom, the gold seems to run in cycles. I found 5 golds in like a month or so and haven't seen any since (seems like years ago now). I dig every pull tab and pull ring too and have exceeded the quota I am sure for tabs to gold ratio. But, got several Buffs and a lot of nickles. Keep at it my friend, I hope you find one of those honking huge 14k rings to show the others that you still got it! LOL Jerry

    I hope Kurt post that find, I love those war Nics. I love that pic of Smittyman, looks like he stole something. We used to have a funny saying, "a waste is a terrible thing to mind"
    Keep digging brother, I'm going to hit the woods for a couple hours tomorrow after church.
    I love this hobby so much, now I'm a coin licker!

    The site is 8 acres and these lead toys have been found all over it, not localized in one small spot. We usually don’t find these, but do find a lot Tootsie Toy cars. Zero cars, 9 lead figures... completely opposite of every other spot that I’ve hunted... thank God.

    Kurt should post today. He was thrilled with the find, I on the other hand, felt like crying. JK.

    GL in the woods, I’m headed to meet P@tch for a bit of digging.
