I research Korean war battlefields and relic hunt in those areas.
In the past year I've found a number of great relics but they are quickly deteriorating. I need help/advice on how to preserve them. Several items need attending to asap for example a u.s. zippo lighter and a french legionaire trench art recovered from an important battle site. Also relics like garrand clips, personal keys, stripper clips, first aid pouch are also deteriorating.
I'm to the point of looking for museums to send them to but not having any luck.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
