Default Strangest Thing I've Found in a Totlot. What is This??

Found this in a local totlot. Anyone recognize it? Looks Russan? I think that is Stalin or Lenin? What the hell have I got here?

That would be Vladimir I. Lenin (says Lenin right above his head in Cyrillic). Looks like a Russian challenge coin (challenging America, no doubt!).

Interesting. Has KGB on it. Here's one selling on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/USSR-Russia...-/272441545273

Nice find! Congrats, Comrade!

Thanks for the info. Wow. 4 have sold on Ebay for $125.00 each. Mines not quite as nice coming from the ground, but that is very interesting. I wish it included more information on who made them and when.

Probably lost by your local antifa chapter when they were protesting against kids having fun at the park.

They're jealous because communism has never worked.

Probably got their rear ends beat by 7 or 8 5th graders and lost those pins.

That is certainly one of the most unique finds I've seen posted here. Awesome save




Speaking of unique, do you know how to catch a unique rabbit?



Easy, unique up on it.




Do you know how to catch a tame rabbit?


The tame way, unique up on it.

Just a few days ago I found a 2018 One Ruble coin, in the parking lot of the local fairgrounds. It is pretty cool,as it has a double-headed eagle on the reverse.
I don't know how it got to central PA from Russia, but it's a different find for me.
