    I too have a small collection of fossils etc. But in terms of militaria the oldest item I have is probably a Napoleonic era British Artillery button that came in a box of odds at auction. The one in the photo isn't mine (can't find it at the moment) but is just like it

    Difficult to date accurately but my 2 canteen rings (one found in SS positions in North Karelia) are thought to date from the late 1920s, possibly with a Freikorps connection.

    The annoying thing is that I know I put it in a box somewhere safe........ obviously so safe that I haven't got a clue where it is

    In terms of Militaria, I have just received this Trench Map today, dated 1917.

    I rather like it.

    Also received a couple of other maps and some aerial photos that I will post when I can get my scanner to work....

    Cheers

    Edit: BTW the top of the table that the map is sitting on is circa 1915 and the legs are circa 1890...(damned cobbled-together stuff!)

    Nice items so far. I have this flintlock military pistol, c.1815. Also a Victorian Rifle Volunteer officers Sword, and an Enfield P53 Rifled Musket dated 1855. The P53 has some missing pieces in this photograph, (sling, sight, ramrod) it has since been completed.
