  1. A few months ago you had every reason to be down but you stayed POSITIVE 🙌🏻 Now that positivity is turning into profit!!! Gold,Diamonds,Platinum,Cash all coming your way Keep sailing ⛵️ 🏴‍☠️

  2. I almost wonder if you should be wearing cotten gloves with all this treasure!! Some of this is historical antiques.

  3. Pirate I have been answering you & talking to you!!! Why don't you answer me??? LOL I JUST
    realized that I am talking out loud to you, & you CAN'T HEAR ME !!! Old age is getting to me.
    You have a very special, get your money back, Unit there. GRAM in TX.

  4. Those are my kind of people. Ask them what they collect and their like well it would be easier to tell you what we don't collect because that's a way shorter list.

  5. I have seen native American blankets sell for more than what you paid for that storage shed. Take them to a expert.

  6. Hi Pirate! How about Museum's in New York? They may be interested in your items, & they would pay insane money. Christie's New York. The MET in New York. What do you have to lose? Take it slow, listen to your subs, they are giving amazing advice. Hold off on the high ticket items from the flee market. I am so happy for you. Blessings!

  7. You've definitely found a winner,a lot of great stuff. I can't help but think many of those small items are worth money,some look really old you go so fast but no problem.what did somebody say last video? Potential100,000$ I do think you'll have to put in more hard work than ever but it will pay off.

  8. I’m Scottish- Glenmorangie is a nice wee dram. The leather “cup holders” are gaiters for your calves over your trousers. Yes, I’m old.

  9. Fabulous! More unbelievable treasures! I 💔 that Pirate hour glass for you! A treasure hoard for a Pirate! It all smells like profit! Tyfs.

  10. Indian blankets look new mexico, the lures are displays for a baitshop to advertise to customers, the eyeglass looks like whalebone, the hand is a model of a real hand sold by prostetician, looks like a major score just into it a few boxes, definitly deserve the score, sorry just catching up on these videos.!! Congratulations Mr.pirate.!!

  11. Mike I watched your third vid first – Please tell me you made a good faith effort to find this guys family -to return the family pics. You sound like a nice guy – be a hero! Thanks, I started following you today!

  12. time stamp 1:36 The huge fishing poppers would have been used for big game fishing eg- Shark, killer wales.
    My father (who has been a fisherman for over 40 years) said to also look out for the weights, they will look like a big round led marble about the size of a large baseball with a loop or drill hole. tey can also look like a big square solid led cow bell these are older than the round ones. If you come across the led weights the poppers may also have been used for catching huge stingrays .

    time stamp 3:30 Native Indian rugs, these look like chant mats that would be used in a sweat tents and drum chants to the elders ect. the longer ones look like saddle blankets that sit in-between the horse and saddle. I am also thinking that if they have no tags, they probably have been hand made.

    time stamp 20:48 these look like shot gun or rifle holders that go on a saddle, so when your riding you holster the gun in these.

    you have some great stuff going on in this locker, am loving the set up withe table and show 'n' tell way better, such a great job pirate, may the lord bless you with enough gold and treasure to purchase a house outright from this unit xx

  13. Hi Mike, I Love your Positive Attitude !!! It puts me in A Great Mood all Day !!! & I THANK YOU FOR THAT !!!

  14. Nice unit … You get your money back easily 😛

    24:34 the lens on the Canon camera is a better lens.. 28mm 3.5 diafragma. More expensive…
    23:53 the Nikon camera should have been a very good one if it wasn't APS.. a system of filmroles that never really made it big…

  15. Hello…I loved the trench art. Never saw anything like it. Nothing on eBay compared to yours. Good Luck and keep um coming. God Bless! 👌🖒❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  16. You are clueless when it comes to value of your stuff. This person was a smart collector, you need to be a smarter seller. You have to keep it together, don't just take it to a flea market, auction will get you the best price, because the buyers know value better than you.

  17. You probably shouldn't buy a house and go pay mortgage on a storefront and that spider probably saved you guys from having tons of bugs in that stuff he deserves a reward…

  18. I used to sell a lot of trench art and you don't get that much for it… Those camera's look seriously expensive.. The people who owned this unit must have been lawyers or something because everything is top of the range…You need a specialist to look at those blankets..

  19. The two leather tubes with the bullet are. Are covers worn over the sins ending at the top of the foot. Old school soldiers wear.

  20. Native American Blankets can be worth a lot of money treat them gently. Highly recommend Sotheby’s Auction House to value all you've found.

  21. The rugs are will saddle blankets. Go under the saddle between the horses back and the saddle. They are modern. Not high dollar

  22. You need to find an expert appraiser, especially for the baseball memorabilia. The Native American blankets could be authentic.

  23. The two leather things were wore as shin guards in WW1 and early WW2…. Man Oh Man you hit the mother load….. bet there is more like a 100,000 worth of stuff in there.

  24. The magnifying glass looks Ivory and Cellulite. The baits are wood so there very old. Deep Sea fishing baits. I like the Weiner dog planter. Wish I was there picking through it with you. These have been your best videos.

  25. The trench art has to be worth some bucks. The camera have value. Love the wood boxes and the hand carved wooden duck decoys .

  26. I think when you were showing the trench art and you pulled out the two leather things that you were wondering if maybe they were holders for the trench art. I believe those were part of the military uniform, they wrapped around the ankles and calves to protect their legs. The straps went on the ankle and just above the calf below the knee. My guess anyway. Amazing locker. I can’t wait to see more!!

  27. Hey storage pirate that filson jacket is not cheap the oilskin pants i bought now go for 200 plus. As if its vintage thirtys or 1940s filson more money contact filson company in seattle wa. Contact pete foss in centralia wa . Has a whole store filled does reenactment historical ww2 has stuff from otjer wars also didnt mention his vehicals either.he give you the value as well as what you can het top resale for it. Can contact (kristpher Matlock )on fb he and pete .both are exmilitary,very up front and honest reputable men.kris is a certified gun builder licensed with common sense .his brother would be interested in the Binoculars.his house is a museum fron civil war to vietnam not even funny. Buffslo hyde easilyover a grand and a half. Makes good powwow drum skin

  28. Just the cameras U discovered so far is about 15K, they are practically new or rarely used , are U o.k. buddy, wake up?

  29. Girl your in no way in deservance of any profit of this unit. You haven’t worked on this unit at all‼️‼️‼️😱😳😲😲😥😥😥😥

  30. Rugs are fairly common western rugs, these are super pretty. they are very common in the western communities. I have 2 or 3, and the smaller ones are saddle blankets.

  31. Check on the Carhartt tags, they should have a union tag, meaning they were made by American union workers, those are the older ones, the new ones are made overseas now.
