I've been hunting a 1780 home. No good coins yet, but a few wheats and some clad.
But, today I found 3 good targets.
A very cool lock: "CORBIN 6 LEVER" - Flat Shackle - Barrel Key. 3" high x 2" wide. Stamped Brass body. Brass shackle. Mfg by: Corbin Cabinet Lock Co. Can't find an exact date, but seems to be c. 1900-1914?

An old lead mounted soldier. He was a little bent and I straightened him just enough so he could stand back up.

And a new "oldest" Dog Tag. 1917 North Stonington #44040. My previous oldest was Killingly 1922.

3 Really nice keepers.
I think that is the best horse and rider lead figure I've ever seen on this site-simply awesome!
Congrats on all

Lead toys are some of my favorite finds. You got a nice one there. Bet he's glad to be out of the ground!
