The TREASURE BEAVER.

I’ve wanted one of these forever!

*******

In 1963 Beaver company (out of Canada) introduced the Machine-O-Matic- built of aluminum and zinc casting.

So after finding out that they still make them, we ordered one in hunter green.

Then customized the ‘acorns’ (1 in capsules) by painting their caps green to match.

Then sourced the 12 things that would fit inside- that we’d be willing to pay a buck each for.

 

  1. HAND-TIED FLY FISHING LURE
  2. MINITURE SET OF DICE
  3. PEWTER BINOCULARS
  4. DIE CAST WISCONSIN LAPEL PIN
  5. MIRACLE FISH GAME
  6. THE CAMP BADGE STICKER
  7. MINIATURE LEATHER 20-PAGE BLANK JOURNAL
  8. CAMP W TATTOO
  9. VINTAGE SMOKEY THE BEAR COLLECTIBLE STAMP
  10. TINY WORKING ALUMINUM COMPASS
  11. HAND PAINTED RACCOON FIGURINE
  12. TOY TURTLE

Charlie insisted on inspecting each item that went into a capsule. She’s working quality control while filling her pockets.
