Kathy, the soldier or cavalryman is wearing the "doughboy" type helmet worn by WW I US and British soldiers. This dates it too 1914 and later. The same helmets were standard USN issue during WW II and Civil Defense wore them in the 50s, 60s, 70s, etc.

The soldier was probably made at home using molds, and hot (molten) lead.  As a kid my Dad and I made soldiers like him in the 1950s. The pouring was unprofessional and as a result many like yours resulted. They were unpainted like yours.  The poorly formed ones were usually re-melted. 

Lead poisoning scares put an end to this hobby.

Thank you Craig and Jason.

Curious about this toy soldier I found at GW.

Can't decide if he's from World War I or Spanish American War.

He's heavy metal, appears to have come from a mold.

Doesn't stand alone. Is 2inches tall and 3 inches long.

Any experts out there?

Thank you Craig

Okay - probably a tourist souvenir out of wood imitating the gourd.
