I love old stuff, especially artifacts of all kinds.
Nice find!



I do, however, need to point out your great typo, if only because it proves how much we have cats on the brain.

You posted that you collect "artifcats"

So many i would like,

12-1300 europe, Also basket hilt claymore which i think was in use around 1700's and i kinda dream of finding a later period Roman sword.

But right now with medical bills, no extra money for toys. But i would still like to see if they have any.

lol i always like them from being a kid, and maybe to many highlander TV shows.
