Hello fellow treasure hunters it appears that I have found my first tootsie toy! It was about time I get to see others finding them and I now find one. I truly love this hobby!

Way cool, man!
Lots of old toy makers out there over the years but Tootsietoy was one of the biggest with a rich history.
Another manufacturer to keep an eye out for is Midgetoy which started after the second world war and I found a couple of their jeep war models too.

One of their models I am hot to find is a Buck Rodgers spaceship made from 1947 with closed windows through the early 50's with open windows in different colors.
On my bucket list for sure because they are so cool.

F70, F2, Compadre, Mojave, Judge2 - 2017....Clad, 15 silver targets including a freaking Barber quarter, a beautiful walker and 4 V nickels...
Plus other cool stuff.

That's a great find! I guess when it was made, it was considered a futuristic design, but they weren't too far off from cars today.

Thank you all! I found this a while back but just got to posting it now. I found it from a house that was built in 1898. I also had a foreign coin spill of something like 22 coins! I will post those later. Thank you Revier for the info I appreciate it. Now I want to find some more!
