Small Cap Gun Found Metal Detecting in Florida
"Toy guns and badges for the year 2020. The Harbor Command badge is pretty cool, 100% in tact with the pin still usable on the back. It was a promotional item for a 1957 TV show of the same name. The other badge is a 50s era tootsie toy badge. The larger cap gun is a 60's US Brave Toy Cap gun. I have yet to identify the smaller cap gun. Very cool to find them whole. I have unearthed at least 10 other pieces of toy guns. My Simplex drags a lot of cool stuff out of the dust. Thanks High Plains."
