Today’s Top 5

The Rifle

is a Flobert, a popular, inexpensive gun made in Belgium. At one time, "Flobert" was a generic term for "beginner" rifles.

Handsome rakes

The one in the stripes has me mesmerized and some of the others aren't bad, either. I love these New Zealand photos. Are there any that show the Maori?

Belt Buckles 2

Those are British Enfield Snake buckles. It's an old military design and had been around a long time by the time of this photo. Those buckles were common imports to both the Confederate and Union Army during the Civil War.

Belt buckles

Interesting belt "buckles". At least four of them have the same style. Anything to this?
