Vampire kit, wood & leather case w/ornate brass hardware, wolf's head & crossbow, interior sections hold wood arrows, prayer book dated 1914, crucifix, rosary, candle stands, double-barrel percussion pistol, lead balls, bullet mold, powder horn, skull bottle, bone pocket knife, silver match holder, hypodermic needle, holy water bottle, coffin nails & much more, probably early 1900's, all VG cond, case 10"H x 12.5"W x 10"D; top crossbow 18"L x 15"W.On the bright side, they aren't claiming it's an authentic kit or offering up a definitive date of manufacture. Given that many of the individual pieces probably do date back to the late 1800s or early 1900s the bid price isn't too out of line, but does seem a bit high. If the after-market hinges hadn't been attached over the decorative scrollwork I'd be a bit more enthusiastic about its quality.
