I've had a couple of requests to show close-ups of an item in my collection. Here are the photos of a solid brass letter opener sword. It's six inches and quite heavy.

I ran across an old box in my basement of small miscellaneous trinkets and doodads that probably hadn't seen the light of day for about 30 years.  To my great surprise, I found this Great Adventure charm featuring a lion amongst the contents.  I know I never bought this item myself at the park or on ebay, so I am 99% positive that it was purchased on my family's first trip to the park in 1974 since the rest of the items in the box dated back to that time.

 

You can imagine how shocked I was when I looked closely at the charm and saw it said "Great Adventure"!
