How were those dated?

Carbon dating of buried campfires where this style of artifacts were found by researchers. GW

Wabigoon: I have several types of fossils, that I found, that are in the 65,000,000 (sixty five million) year old to 240,000,000 (two hundred and forty million!) year old range.
Including Ammonites, Texonites and Baculites.
I like older stuff.

I also have some of those, some that I bought at the Denver Rock and Mineral shows, and others that I found, ammonites and baculites in eastern Montana and trilobites in Utah.

Two buffalo skulls that I found in Colorado in the 1960s and another I found in Montana about 20 years ago:

For man made things, how about the beaded moccosins that the Ute Indian Chief, Ouray, was wearing and took them off and gave them to my Great Great Grandfather in 1859:

Or the picture of that same GG Grandfather seated next to Kit Carson taken in 1868:

And these items that I inherited from my Dad's side of the family. The Bowie knife has "Capt, Wm Gibson, Denver July 1884" stamped on it. The two Nickle coated Colt Double action .38s belonged to my Great Grandfather. The 1911 Colt was my Grandfather's in WWI, and the 1st gen Colt SAA .45 was carried by my GG Uncle in the late 1800s. The Model 1906 Winchester .22 belonged to my Grandmother in the early 1900s.

But probably the oldest things that I have are the bronzed baby shoes that I wore in about 1947 grin

Oldest thing I can actually date is an 1800 Spanish dollar, with chop marks added by Chinese merchants. There are a few arrowheads as well.

I also have a Damascus steel knife with a mammoth ivory handle scrimshawed by Eureka Springs artisan Kurtz Miller, a gift from Kurtz after his father passed.

That's an extremely cool Krag. You should explore the wonderful world of cast bullets in that rifle. The long neck of the 30-40 Krag cartridge is perfect for cast bullets.

These look like a good bet. I'd load them with H4895 to a velocity of about 1850 fps,...magnum primers to insure that the relatively light load gets ignited properly.

You need to come up with a die that would put a slight flare on the mouth of the case to keep from shaving lead when you seat the bullet. Other than that, it's a fairly straight forward process.

Amazing. Evidence suggests those same natives visited my local WMA……

They seem to have spent most of their time along the Shenandoah river. Wish they’d at least have carried off their tangled wads of mono.

Great collection buffybr! Your family kept these all intact for future generations. Have to admire them. I have my baby shoes from 1945 but my mother never had the extra cash to have them bronzed. Likely she was saving them for the next baby but she quit after me #12. Dad said when he seen me, he knew it was time to quit. Good or bad? confused

A prehistoric knife, came from an ancient blue jade mine in Idaho somewhere and traveled all the way here to SC 13,500-15,000 years ago. I found it while digging the footing foundation for my grandfather's house back in the 60s. Really wasn't sure what it was for decades, thought perhaps an arrow head or spear head of some kind but ... it was a couple of feet deep, in hard clay.

Then I met Dr Albert Goodyear (google him) at the UofSC in 2014 and showed it to him. He was visibly surprised, somewhat shocked, asked me where I found it .... then he dated-it, told me where it came from and what it was used-for. So ... 13,500-15,000 years old, somewhere in there.

My Krag was made in 1904. Looked like a DCM carbine cut down.

My grandfather's pre-1909 passport. It's in Russian, from what is present day Poland.

I have some cast bullets a friend made me and was going to try them. But it shoots factory and my hand loads with 180 BT and 4350 so well I never worked up a load. With hand loads, even with the peep sights, I can get it to shoot around an inch most days.
I have been in the deer woods with it but no luck. Maybe the deer are afraid of it. 😂
