Last weekend a buddy and I hunted an old bible camp that appeared to be abandoned back in the 50's. Nothing left, save for old foundations. I dug two mercs and a dozen wheats, buddy dug a merc, silver Rosie and dateless standing liberty, and a dozen wheats. No modern trash like pulltabs, which was odd. I also dug a mid-tone signal that produced this old 30's Auburn Speedster. For me, way cooler than common silver!

@FFD, is it die-cast zinc? I'd be interested to see how it cleans up.

@Spence yes I believe it is, just pot metal. There is some corrosion on the running boards of side shown, but the 4 holed axel tabs are complete.

I like that! If you get it cleaned up I would love to see some pictures.
