  38. No valuations on this site. There is an Appraisal link at the top of the screen.
  39. It is actually a ginger jar. Do you have an image of the bottom? You get to add four images.....
  40. Free is my favorite price. Nice find.

  48. Just yanking on your chain based on your trench art post....
  49. Yeah, these came in MRE's as early as the 1990s. I have some 1990s-2000s MREs and these are in some of them. For those who don't know MRE = Meals, Ready to Eat. Field rations for the US military. I d...
