Three smaller traps and this trap with a bear claw in it
were inside the pack.

garage for about thirty-five years.]

conditioning/moisturizing the pack.]

Issac's applejack? barrel &
snoose? container are also being offered on current eBay listings;
--his Yankee Division WWI Uniform(s)
& Chicago Police Officer Uniforms soon.
