I am looking for old Mormon artifacts from the book of Mormon. I would like to purchase items from the days of the Nephites and Lamanites such as shields, arrows, bows, knives, or any of the other items that they might have used in there battles, anything would be great. I would also love to have maps, pottery, coins, statues, vases, or any artifacts from the large city of Zarahemla or Mulek. If some one had any writing in reformed Egyptian that was apparently used I would like to see it.
It should be easy to find at least one item from a civilization that had millions of people with cities and large army's. The picture I included was directly off of the LDS website and it clearly shows swords, spears, breastplates, and shields. All that takes a developed people to make.

Also if any LDS people are out there that were dark skinned and are now changed to "white and delightsome" it would be neat to here your story. I would pay top dollar to any native American that could prove his DNA was from a Jewish background. In 1857, Brigham Young declared that apostates would "become gray-haired, wrinkled, and black, just like the Devil" (Journal of Discourse 5:332). Any apostates out there that this has happened to!! I would give $10,000 for an interview.

I am not interested in any biblical historical items, as they are not that hard to find, I am only interested in Mormon (pre 1800's) items.
