I found this little fella earlier today. I confess I got a little excited when I started to see it emerge from within the clump...It was only when I cleaned it up a bit that I realised it was probably something a little more mundane.

I think the white on the surface is paint rather then lead oxide.

Anybody care to have a guess of age?
I am thinking early 1900’s so anything earlier will be a bonus...

Quote Pete ,...." I am thinking early 1900’s ".


My estimation is, It could well be anything from 1930 `s to 1950`s going by the style of it . They are not the sort of thing you can pin down to any particular single decade though.I don`t feel we are far off the mark though in my estimated spread.

The sad thing is for me, I used to play with lead soldiers and lead Farm animals as a small kid. . :roll:

Thanks Bors...That was sort of my thinking but just wanted to make sure before consigning it to the junk box...

So did I! My brother is ten years older than me so I inherited all his toys....the dinky toys *my favourite was the Triumph TR2 and we had some very old style dinky racing cars. Whenever dad had a delivery of sand we'd make a downhill course winding down the big pile and race them down it and pretend it was the Mille Miglia . :lol: Lead toy soldiers with the cardboard fortress and the guns that fired matchsticks, and the farm animals too. I particularly remember the big pink pigs...they each only had one ear for some reason .

Pete....I should go over the area with minute care. There has to be a golden egg....or something golden...somewhere nearby because you already have the goose.
Live long and prosper.

Laugh, but I had a 4.5" length of 15k gold watch chain from not very far away last year! :D :D
