Finding historical objects

 When asked what she'd like for her birthday, my daughter said "things from 1780-1810".

She's very interested in this period - largely from the naval history angle.

She likes real objects to use in role playing games - I've seen her use a few items of WW11 stuff to great effect. Just passing them round the players really helps to embed you in the setting.


However, there isn't much stuff around from 1780-1810 and most of what I can find is expensive coins.

Can anyone give me interesting suggestions?

Original is best, but replicas would probably do if accurate.
