I did it! I finally found my first coin! It is a 1977 Quarter and I found it under a pine tree on a trail leading up the hill. I assume that a hunter lost this along the way since I have found several bullets and casings in the woods in this area.
I also found a 1949 Ford F6 Truck from TootsieToy. This is from the TootsieToy 4” series. It was released in 1950, and was produced from 1950-1969. This casting came first with closed fenderwells, and then later open well.
