    TREASURE HOARD........FOUND!
    I am cleaning out the sold house (contents included) of a deceased man that lived to be about 90.
    In the back of the garage were some old boxes on the floor with roaches, rats and silverfish living in them. A job for a real treasure hunter.
    This is some of what I found and I will keep some things private.
    I FOUND HIS TOYS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD!
    I found a mercury dime in a birthday card from 1937 addressed to a little boy. He must have missed this gift inside the envelope.
    The dime was complety black so I gently used a soft silver cream to be able to see the silver.
    It sure is a clean looking dime as it was hidden in a box with all of this kids birthday memories for all of these years.
    Rats and silverfish have destroyed most of the stuff in the boxes in the garage but I did salvage metal toys, a couple of cards, baby clothes, scout badge, face powder, Zell Piggy Bank, milk tops and stuff that I have added in my photos. This is what I love to do, treasure hunt.

      The crocheted baby shoes with the linings are so sweet! And the beautiful baby’s cap!
      Everything shown must have been treasures to someone so it’s wonderful that you have rescued them and will continue to treasure them.

      Thank you Watchsearcher and all of ya'll.
      I will post what I have found in some of the other boxes.
      I found some of what looks like his mother's stuff too. I'm still finding stuff.
      It's so sad how they got so old that they didn't think or remember to keep this stuff protected inside the house.

      Fantastic finds, touching and fun.
      I can't believe the rubber tyres are still so good. No sun damage I guess!

      The racer with "22" on it is a Hubley. I think the futuristic looking car is also. Amazing find, kudos!
