top secret! : )
This version of our brass time capsule contains quite a bit of the past, and by past we mean that the specimen inside is conjectured to be 66-90 million years old. Titanosaurs lived from the Late Jurassic-Cretaceous Period, and I think May Kendall, poet and satirist, puts the air of this time wonderfully:
“I abide in a goodly Museum,
Frequented by sages profound:
'Tis a kind of strange mausoleum,
Where the beasts that have vanished abound.
There's a bird of the ages Triassic,
With his antediluvian beak,
And many a reptile Jurassic,
And many a monster antique. “
This capsule is meant to be a reminder of adventure. So purchase at your own risk! And prepare for all the brilliant and courageous adventures ahead.

Because of the inherent nature of brass to weather over time, your capsule colour will deepen over the years, giving further character to its already beautiful aesthetics. Your specimen will vary in size, shape, and colour, as each specimen has its own qualities.
