Default Not valuable but pretty cool

Can't believe I was still able to dig in early January in Iowa but I was. Found these two things along with a couple of silver. The neckerchief is from 1960 celebrating 50 years of the BSA. Was about 6" down. The two cars were found in a private yard. The Tootsie I think is 1950's while the Johnny Lightning says 1970. Glad I could save that bit of history.
