The Center of the West reborn

It's a difficult question--what 25 objects would I risk my life to save and use as the foundation of a "new" Buffalo Bill Center of the West. I believe they should represent the West itself, but the story of the West means different things to different people and cultures. If this is truly to remain the "Center" of the West, we'll have to try to represent the breadth of that story. Here is my attempt.
