    Just some relics I'm a little bit proud of

    Most of the relics have been through an electrolysis bath. Some have been donated to local museums. One of the relics is a bit difficult to see the writing on but it says ACL which is Atlantic Coastline Railroad and on the other side it says "Oviedo, FL" which is where I live. It's a lead luggage car seal tag. The other relics should be pretty self explanatory. I love the cobbler hammer though, dated to late 1800's early 1900's.
