#13 The knife was sharpened with cutlery file, it grinds down a lot, not like a whetstone that can be more gentle, pretty normal and reasonable :)

Those bird scissors look old, but you can buy those brand new as well. They're quality and as a kid I was forbidden from cutting paper with them.

#17 If calculated for inflation only, that bill (X-ray / Operating room) should be a little under $30... in reality, I expect you'd not see those services for under $30,000 in the US today. dash

The Social Security card did not come as metal. The government sent a paper one. Many places would imprint it on metal for you. That was a favorite thing at local fairs, for example.
