Aside from rocks and arrowheads, I reckon it would be an 1863 dated 1861 Norfolk contract musket.

Other than 3 frames of arrowheads that are very old I would imagine, it would be my Krag made in 1900. 122 years old and sill going strong. Pretty amazing I think.

wabigoon;
Top of the morning my friend, I hope you and your fine family are hale and hearty this November Thursday.

We had this topic on a Canuck forum I'm on, so I'm prepared as it were, even with a photo and all!

From the top left is a Genco straight razor made in Geneva, NY with antler handles I made. The right straight razor is Hunter and Son - Talbot Works - Sheffield with original horn handles and case. Best guess they're 1890's to early 1900's production.

The Minnie Ball is from the War Between the States as far as I can ascertain and the .577-.450 case was found in the hills here, so likely about 1900 as a guess.

My late mother was given the 1890 US Silver Dollar when she was 5 or 6 so not quite a century in the family, but close.

The mammoth ivory bark is from the Yukon, a gift from a good friend who works up there, so depending upon who one reads, it's likely 11,000 odd years give or take?

Thanks for the thread and to all who've participated.

All the best to you all and good luck to those who hunt.

Dwayne

I Have a Mosin Nagant that is the original version. 31" barrel and such, so pre 1900.

Some Precambrian minerals, Garnets, from the Ruby Mountains in Nevada. They're a few billion years old.

A dinosaur femur from the Cretaceous, but it's only 70-ish million years old.
