I’ve retrieved these four soldier figures from the back area of my property. All on different days. Poor kid kept losing his troops.
They’re a bit heavy, so I’m assuming they are lead.

Cool finds! We made lead soldiers when we were kids (probably explains why I'm always walking in circles). It was stopped after a neighbor kid tripped on the electric cord for the molten lead pot heater and ended up with molten lead spilled on his foot.

Very good finds...I love old toys like that. Back then they built toys to last, I have only found one lead toy and its a of a business woman figurine from the 1940s. Soldiers are a lot cooler !

I had a lot of lead Soldiers when i was a child. I bet the Garden center had a sand boxthere and if someone ran a detector of it they would find some more lead soldiers. I want to congratulate you on your finds and thank you for bringing back fond memories of my child hood
