Have a knife I made with a Russian bog oak handle, the wood is carbon dated around 3500 years ago. Yeah that's pretty old.

A 32 caliber squirrel rifle that belonged to a long forgotten relative. My grandmother thought it belonged to her uncle. It was built around the time of the civile war. I can't find any stampings or marks to indicate the builder.

I have a 16th century Japanese matchlock rifle.

I bought it to commemorate the one my grandmother gave to my Dad after WW2.
A serviceman brought it back to our small hometown and she bought it for my Dad.

Dad was a trader and at some point he swapped that one for some other gun.

I always admired it as a child, so bought mine when I had the chance. It is not in near the condition Dad's was, but brings back good memories.

My mother's family farm dates to pre revolution times. She was born there in 1916 in the old family home that was built before 1776. As a kid I played in part of that house before my Grandfather died and left no will. 160 acre tobacco farm sold at auction for penny's because he did not know enough to protect it. I do have some of the original handmade nails that held the house together.

Not the very oldest item given to me as new but close enough to it. Sears branded binoculars for my 11th or 12th birthday. Love ‘em for the memories and all of the miles they were carried. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Then mammoth ivory, arrowheads, fossils, and a bunch of recycled atoms. Oh, and photons!

Wife's upright piano was made in 1918. I have my great-great grandads journal from the late 1800's; those are about the oldest things we have around.
Not counting several fossils of unknown age, some millions of years.

Come to think of it, we have some family documents from the ear1800s and a music box from the 1700s.

Man made. Not counting dozens of arrowheads, is my Savage 1895 made in 1896. Obviously, arrowheads are much older. Savage still fires fine.

Guessing the oldest thing I own is an original 1873 Winchester in .44-40, or perhaps a Morgan silver dollar that may pre-date it by a couple years.....
