I don't know what this is supposed to be. I thought at first it might be a bank with the slot for a "mouth". The 5.5"  body is made of wood and has a foil label on the bottom. The "nose" twists and makes the "legs" looser or tighter, but they don't come off. Could it just be a novelty knickknack?

Empire pewter S&Ps. Similar sets selling on eBay anywhere from $1 to $12.

Commemorative souvenir spoon - Queen Beatrix in 1980. Not silver or it would be marked.

Comment by Jeff Guy on August 9, 2014 at 10:25pm

This forum has switched its name again - now its whadjafind again - not whadjafindtoday. Confusing!!

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on August 8, 2014 at 8:02am

Some old shoes

A bronze boot, 3" tall. Heel has some stippling around the outer edge.

This resembles a  Monopoly token. 4" long.

on the bottom, I can't discern whether this is a mark or just some incidental scratches:

A moccasin from Canada, 4" long.

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.
