My father, who died this past August, had in his possession some very old guns that we are told had belonged to his grandfather, my great grandfather, from his service in the Navy during the Spanish American war and WWI.
My mother having moved to assisted living we will be selling the house at some point in the future and at that time or sooner I will need to learn what I need to do to move these items and store them at my house as family heirlooms. (No ammunition)
I expect that I will need to learn what these firearms actually are if I am required to get a permit and license. I am in Massachusetts.
If anyone has any information on what the items pictured below are, and the chances that they can be declared antiques, I'd be very appreciative.
Other than that I have been told they they all came from the two wars above during my great grandfather's service in the Navy, the only story I have been told is that the pistol if from the Spanish American war and that it was ffrom a Spanish officer that my great grandfather disarmed while in Cuba.
I guess it will take a few posts to get them all posted
