    I have an old pocket watch from 1880 that was my great grandfathers when he was a train conductor. I also have some rifles from the 1940's. My M1 Garand is from 1945 and my Mosin Nagant is from 1943. I also have some Morgan dollars from 1902 and 1903.

    That is all that comes to mind as "old".

    I have a pair of gloves that my grandmother wore to her prom. She said that my great-grandmother kept them for years since they cost $15 and that was a lot of money back then.

    I also have an obsidian mayan tool that was found in a cave in Mexico.

    I'm going to try to do this from memory.

    I have a 1st Edition copy of For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway.

    I have an old replica pirate sword from India. I have no clue how old it is.

    I have tons of old toys around my house. I have some 70's-90's baseball cards in storage along with some old newspapers, odd collectibles, and random glass bottles.

    I really don't own anything that old. I have a ring that my grandfather got for my grandmother back in the 1930's on their travels around the world. And I used to have a really old mirror, I think it was from the early 1900's that was really awesome and ornately carved. Unfortunately I couldn't take it overseas with me.
