Antique Bolt
It's said that some of the bolts on the Army Route date back to the 1950s, placed by the US Army.
"Vintage" is good in wine, not sure about bolts.

Well, Liba, my appreciation for history at bolts like these is tempered by my contemplation of the effects of weather and corrosion.

I know, I know, these antique bolts are supposed to be so bomber (They don't make 'em like they used to!) but they can still give me the creeps. ;)
