Hit the beach with the excal Saturday, 2 hours in we were not doing well except for a few clad and some sinkers. Decided to go the distance and walk about 1/4 mile down the shore where there are more rocks, mud and shells rather than deep sand. Right off the bat got this 7.7 gram 14k gold band. Then not far away dug this old British soldier. Not sure if it is lead or cast iron. It says "Made in England" underneath the base, also says something else but I just can't make it out. Has a movable left arm holding a bayonette. Pretty cool. Would love to know the approximate age and maker of this one.

Great finds, congrats on both of them! Can you post other photos of the soldier? Something about the moving "arm" doesn't look right. I am sure it is a Britains soldier, made in England. Cheers, Sub 8-)

Can you give us a close up photo of the underside of the base please? I may be able to help you with this. Sub 8-)
