A Monarch 10ee as well as the other manual machine tools that made those planes and engines. I understand that there are quite a few radioactive Monarch lathes left from plutonium production buried on the Hanford reservation. Most of the companies (but not Monarch) that made those manual machines are long gone in the US, but their tradition of excellence ts still carried on in other parts of the world.

A B-24 Liberator, a Norden Bombsight, an M1 Garand and a Bomber Crewmember's flight suit. My Dad was a top turret gunner on a B-24, shot down over Germany and was a Prisoner of War for 15 months. I've always had the utmost respect for their generation and what these young men and women did. You don't see that kind of devotion these days.

A Vickers machine gun and the ability (meaning a change in the English gun laws) to shoot it.

But one of these is fun too:-
