Sorry I don't have any pictures at the moment but I can post some later if you want. Anyways...

I've got 2 twin beds from my great grandparents house (not sure how old)

a Browning sweet sixteen shotgun thats around 60 years old

a double barrel shot gun that was originally sold at sears for 22 cents (not sure how old)

a 30-30 my grandpa got when you got out of the navy around 1950

some old tools that were my great grandpaw's

and his old hard hat (not sure how old either)

I'll have to get some photos of our coin collection. Also, these aren't antiques, but my dad has done some really nice drawings of houses much like that one of the corn shed you did.

Ok, sorry for those of you with internet that isn't THAT fast, cause here comes some photos of our currency collection.

Some $2's

Unfolded and random serial numbers.

These 8 are unfolded and sequential.

2 unfolded, sequential and a repeated serial number $1

Oversized bills next to a Silver Certificate for size comparison.

Sequential, unfolded Silver Certificates.

Others.

Post '64 Kennedy halves.

1883 Dollars.


Uncirculated nickel set.

Some gold plated.

Colorized. (Grandpa loved these nickels for some reason??)

Beat up $2's and Silver Certificates.

Pre and '64 quarters.

More post '64 Kennedy halves.

'64 Kennedy halves.


Franklin halves. (423 or so, I found a few '64 Kennedys and a Liberty Walking in there after but regardless, 152.99oz of silver)

Liberty Walking halves (328 which is 118.63 oz of silver)

A baggie of assorted coins.

20 1oz Silver Dollars, uncirculated mint condition.




These are by no means antiques, but your corn shed drawing reminded me of these ink drawings my dad has done recently. One of our house and the other two were purchased (to be done of the winner's house) at a charity auction for $400 and $500.

Nice coin collection. I'd love to have all those walking liberty halves.
I used to have a bunch of gold and silver bars and some American eagles and some low serial number Pamp Suisse charms but had to sell them all when my gto ate a piston. I would love to get Them all back someday.

The only bad part about all of those Walking Liberty's is that they are mostly well worn and are in about as poor of condition as they can be.

Too much nos, popped the top off piston #7 and cracked the cylinder sleeve. Had to buy a new short block, while the motor was out I went head and did a cam, and had the heads ported and polished and new valve job wiith new springs and chromoly pushrods and finished off with a custom dyno tune.

As of today it closed at $39.91 an ounce.... You got a pretty nice haul there. I am jealous, and I would also sit on it as long as humanly possible because the only place silver is going s up.
