The guy regularly donates stuff to museums from the rations he tests, collects and videos. The making of the video itself is a form of preservation, as many of these rations are just going to disintegrate after an amount of time anyway, and to have video evidence of how they tasted, were supposed to be prepared, how they lasted and what they looked like is as important as saving the artifacts themselves.Unique video, but destroying a civil war rarity is a real shame. At least he saved half of it and the wrapper for the museum. Back in 1984, when Vince Nolt sold off his fabulous "Eagle Museum" collection, he auctioned off two unwrapped original Hard Tack biscuits for $120 with 10% buyers premium and 6% Pa sales tax. Quite an expensive collectable even back then!
