    I was thinking, old tools, possibly some family heirloom but thanks to Chris4x4 I had a no brainer... these were from my two grandfathers, found in Kentucky and Pennsilvania. They both had the same Ideas, a farmer would plow his field, it would rain washing away loose soil, the next day they would walk the field and found these. My dad made the frame. Good memories of my grandfathers, thanks. Kevin

    Damn...makes me kinda wish my family held onto more stuff. The oldest thing I have and still use is an Igloo lunch box that my mom gave to my dad for his first day at General Motors about 35 years ago. It may not be OLD, but it's older than me. I'll give it to my son one day.

    It means a lot to me just because I use to see him carry it in and out of the house when I was just a few years old. He carried that lunchbox to a place that he hated with all of his heart for 30 years so that he could provide for my mom and I.
