1919 Wheat Penny and Truck

I detected around an old foundation in the woods that sat next to a fork in a creek. I found the usual farm junk, but I was also lucky enough to find this Tootsie Toy truck. The Truck is a model ’49 Ford, but this particular truck dates after 1955.

The earlier models of this truck had closed fender wells. I actually found one of the earlier ones a couple years back.

This is from the TootsieToy 4” series. It was released in 1950, and was produced from 1950-1969. This casting came first with closed fender wells, and then later open well.

I was using the Fisher F5 near a huge tree and got a solid 70 signal, so I dug it… It turned out to be the best find of the day and it was this 1919 Wheat Penny. It’s definitely an oldie and it kept me from getting skunked, so I’ll take it. 😀

    Sounds like an area you need to plug away at….the 1919 cent is an indication that there might well be more good stuff there. Good post Rob…
