    Found an old lead toy motorcycle

    I hunted two sites today, one was the old park a couple towns over that the city was cutting trenches for new sprinklers and the other was part of an old sidewalk that was just torn out due to tree roots, at the old park I found a cool old little lead motorbike which is going in my display case, its my first old toy that I have found, at the same site I found a copper thing that has the three little pigs, and some type of foriegn coin, at the sidewalk tearout was the no date wheat.

    Very cool. Based on the animal on it, the coin might be from Africa.

    Neat finds Steve ......You sure have been in the right spot at the right time here lately
