    Coins were minted by the 100s of millions. I like finding 'em , too, but that token is actually your star find there. It's much rarer than any of the coins, has local historical significance, and even if it is only worth 10 bucks, it is worth more than the Mercury dime by five-fold.

    Nice token!

    Very nice hunt, ML! Your soldiers were made by Manoil (An American company) circa 1935-1942, and are anti-aircraft gunners. Cheers Sub

    I know LEO and Fire badges...I know toy soldiers...I am learning about everything else from you!

    What "unearth" are you doing out there?

    Those toys are awesome! I can imagine there was a little boy somewhere having a lot of fun before those guys went missing for the night. There is certainly a story behind every find but I can imagine a little boy playing war with his soldiers and getting called in for dinner and leaving those behind in his excitement!

    Nice token congrats! Like the soldiers too. We made lead soldiers as kids until my brother tripped on the electric cord for the melting pot and spilled molten lead on his foot!
