I don't have any antiques that is with the exception of Mrs. Peddler. I do have a box of 45-70 ammo that's real old.
The box which was never opened is starting to fall apart. The method used to open the box is string under the seal. It says 45-70 Solid head UMC, Central fire Cartridges mfg. by The Union Metallic Cartridge Co.
US Government Standard Solid Head .45 cal., 70 grains powder and 500 grain bullet.

Skip, I think that box of 45-70 is an antique. I'm pretty sure the cartridge box collectors would be very interested in it.

I've got a few antiques myself, but I don't think I could compete with ILya's fun box.

Actually, it's tea! Big Grin I didn't have anything except fairly expensive liquor on hand, and didn't want to waste expensive booze just to take a pic when tea was the right color and you can't tell the difference for the purpose of the photo.

My wife's grandfather took it off a Nazi officer somewhere in Germany at the close of WW2.  He took some other stuff too, but that'll be another antique photo contest.  Most awesome among them: a Colt 455 revolver that a german tanker took off a british tanker, her grandfather took it back.  That is awesome!

Is the blade of that sabre engraved, and if so, do you know what it says?

Dad brought a very similar sabre back from the war. I took it to the Military Show of Shows and found a collector that spoke German and had him appraise and interpret the engraving for me. He said it was a ceremonial sword from WWI that was awarded to a Sgt. in an artillery unit. That's about all I can remember.

What's story behind this piece, Roy? 


This was my grandfather's that I inherited when he passed away along with a Winchester 53 and a 52 Target 22lr.

Love the pic Ted.  It seems it is telling a story my guess is the story goes like this:

Sheriff:  "Alright Bill, you ain't a deputy no more.  I'll finish unloading that pistol fer ya, you just leave it with your badge and keys here, and get your drunk carcass out of my office!"

Haha! I like your story better than mine, Matt!

My thought for the pic's "story" was... after a particularly rough day, a frontier sheriff came in his office, threw his gear on his desk, emptied his pockets, removed his badge and said "the hell with this; I'm getting too old for this $#%!" Then, he poured himself a shot of whiskey as he contemplated what he'd do after retirement.
