Lead? Toy Soldier
Quote this message in a reply
I just found this little guy.  Not sure if it's lead.  It's pretty heavy.  It was buried in the ground and he's no rust or corrosion.  Most of the paint is still intact.  It hit like nickel on the T2.  What do you guys think?  Is it lead or something similar toys may have been made of?

very cool, bet that was a fun little find. 
I used to see toys like that back in the early - mid 70`s.
then they kinda faded out. likely from just before that period.
any date or marks on the bottom .

Wow that was fast.  Thanks for that ID Bob.  Cool link Joe.  So I'm guessing this one is from between 1951 and 1964 if I read that right.
