This European Fighting Axe was found in a field along the Wabash River between a French trading post and the Tippecanoe battlefield. That doesn’t mean that it had anything to do with either. I’m just sayin’. Anyway this is a very cool artifact. It is definitely very old. I now have new information from an expert. Apparently it is a battle-axe of a type originally from Eastern Europe (Hungarian or Polish) ca 1600.

This stirrup was purchased as part of a collection in the late 60’s. It had a tag on it that claimed it was from the war of 1812. However I believe it is more in line with WW1. It has U.S. stamped on the inside with initials A.B. underneath. The strap looks to be original and has a tear that runs almost the entire width.
