    I'm not sure about the best place to post this, so here goes:

    We are in need of some advice, input or ?
    We have a 125 year old birchbark canoe (complete story at www.hamiltonstore.com) which our firm has been retained to liquidate.

    The question is: Just how rare are 19th century birchbarks?

    It's one of the surviving canoes from Capt. Willard Glazier's 1881 Mississippi headwaters expedition.

    Images are at either my website or www.greatrivercanoe.com.

    Thanks, we appreciate your input.
