On that same vein, the Silver Cannonball of Grandy Nanny goes next. It was painted silver, so at least it was...sparkly.

The Golden Cup goes next. While it was just a tiny cup, at least it was more interesting than some of the artifacts left. And it was the first artifact too, so I could cut it some slack.

The Trojan Horseshoe goes next. I know Silver Horseshoe is pretty much the same artifact, but I figured the former should go first.

It's been long past three hours for me, and I'm getting rid of The Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy next. Since like I said above, it is pretty much the exact same artifact as The Trojan Horseshoe.

The Lucky Pig goes next for me. While the artifact was a tiny piggy bank, the name for it was pretty neat. And it is better than what's left.

Next to go will be the Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King.  Yes, it was completely gross-looking, but the detail put into it was very impressive, and unlike the Shriveled Hand, it did look like an old human hand as opposed to one that came from a monkey wearing fake fingernails.

The Oracle Bowl of Delphi goes next. It's the most interesting artifact of both Season 1, and out of what's still left on the list.

While the Lily-Crested Crown looked like one of those crowns you got at Burger King, I also liked the details the actual crown contained. And it is better than what is left...

I'm getting rid of The Lost Whale Bone of Pytheas next. A bone is more interesting to look at than any of the other book or map artifacts that still remain.

And the Lost Whale Bone starts off our bottom 25!

I am getting rid of the Water Bottle of Ponce de Leon next. While the artifact sounds lame, it actually makes sense if you think about what the legend is about. The Water Bottle was suppose to contain water from the Fountain of Youth.

Getting rid of The Dried Apple Half of William Tell next. It's not as boring or uninspiring as what's left.

Dead Man's Hand is the next one to go. While it was just a few cards glued together, you have to admit that the artifact does sound awesome before watching the episode. I am sure most of us expected some old looking hand like the Shriveled Hand. :P

Time for The Walking Stick of Harriet Tubman to go next. I liked the concept of a stick being an artifact, plus it was interesting to look at.

While  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: was just a silk cloth, at least it looked pretty interesting. And since the Silk Sash has been long eliminated, so should this one.

Since all the "book" artifacts have been eliminated, I'll get rid of the Lost Logbooks of Magellan. They were an okay concept, and downright interesting to look at compared to some S1 artifacts.
