    I don't have any old stuff unless it means something to me. Have my first single shot 28 gauge from the 70s. Have a pistol that belonged to my great grandfather. Have an old pflueger reel that belonged to my grandfather. Still has the camo line on it.

    Probably not worth much but means a lot to me when I look at them. Same with his old model 31 shotgun.

    Other than fossils and arrowheads I have a lot of 100+ year old shop equipment like this power hammer. It’s 114 years old. Also have a pocket watch that’s about 125 years old

    I have the Roman coin like the one in this picture. Its from 31 BC and is a Mark Antony Denarius. Its said that Cleopatra supplied the silver to make them to fund a war. Neat to think it was before the time Christ walked the earth. Funny thing is I got it from a boy in the 7th grade when I traded him some of my lunch. He said he found it in a creek but I'm thinking it came from his dads collection. Also traded for a small California gold coin that's shaped like an octagon and is from the gold rush period. Not sure if that's real or not but looks real.

    An old serving plate that my maternal granny’s family passed down from the 1800’s. Also have a MaGuffeys Eclectic Reader (See Spot Run stuff) from mid to late 1800’s. I believe first edition no later than second. I’ll have to get it out and check.

    I guess me and Barn are gonna be kin yet,..here is what we always called fossilized wood,...looks just like yours.
    Also my celt I found and just posted on the axe thread..
    A viking axe i bought off ebay from a detectorist in Europe some years ago...I can't guarantee it's viking but it was shipped from Norway/Sweden area and for sure came out of the ground. Have some paper work for it somewhere.
    Also some carving material..but it turned out to be on the brittle side. Some wooly mammoth femur parts and a vertebrae.
