The Duck foot is a cool piece too. How lucky for you to be able to hold and touch these historical pieces.
Thanks Bawanna. I know, these old weapons were works of art for sure. You would not believe the collection that the late Col. Farley Berman had. All of his collection fills all 3 floors of the museum with the bottom one being the basement, which is off limits to the public but houses thousands of pieces that would blow your mind! If yall are ever down this way (Berman Musuem of World History, Anniston, AL), stop in and ask for me (my office is at the natural history museum next door).
BTW, hope yall dont think I am spamming - we are a not-for-profit organization. Just though yall would like to see a little bit of the collection. These I am showing you are not even on exhibit and are in the walk-in vault down in the basement.
