I have to say I haven’t been Metal Detecting so much I haven’t even got my first silver of this year but I did manage to hit some things I put a smile on my face. The heat with the humidity is brutal out here and Salton Louisiana at 4:30 we’re still at one06° but I went out there and did my best with the new spot and I got a beautiful toy gun that was made in Hong Kong it’s got a lot of fancy on it some suspender clips I musketball a buffalo nickel or watch and these teeny tiny cars. Does anybody know what these mini cars were called and made? I know it’s not much but I really need this day today

Those high temps by you in the late afternoon is amazing.
I don’t think we ever had temps that high over here in NY.

That small car with the metal wheels is a Barclay toy car from the 1940's and 50's.
The Barclay cars are much more harder to find than the common Tootsie Toy cars.

Because I only see an attachment point at the bottom, the watch looks like the kind female nurses and teachers used to wear pinned on their blouses. Hung upside down so they could turn it up to read it. More of a modern style though. Am I missing where a band would attach at 12?

I knew there was something weird about it since it just has one attachment and that would make sense if it hung upside down and they would lift it To see what time it is. The maker is something Creek
