    As I've been cleaning out the garage to get out my USAF used 1948 Willys CJ2a for restoration, I've come across a few things I had stashed in the garage. Here's a few that were in a box.

    Slab side canteen with original cover and leather strap for saddle attachment. The cover doesn't look as nice as it does in the picture. Original belt with OVM (Ohio Volunteer Militia) buckle, Original Cap Box, and 5 GAR buttons.

    GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) buttons. These were the Union Veterans.

    2 socket type bayonets.
    Top is from a US Model 1822 model .69 caliber musket. Bottom is from an Austrian musket I think. It is in relic condition and came from a battlefield.

    6 pound solid shot from Island No. 10. Vicksburg, Miss. Note the ring where it sat in the mud in the river.
