Tales from the Vault is a series of articles designed to highlight the lesser-known parts of the ANA collection. 

These columns feature interesting and informative stories about individual objects or groups of objects that do not often (or ever) get to see the light of day.

The collection within the ANA vault holds  approximately 275,000 objects ; however, we only have space to show a tiny fraction of these hidden gems. Check back regularly for an inside look at the ANA vault  and the marvelous collection we are excited to share with you.
