    I believe it is a sever birth rare.
    It is not able to use to secure.

    I think I have one of those mixed in with my other bones containers. Somewhere in that same pile there's also a barrel which isn't a container, and a "keg" which is.

    It is not a server birth rare. They were normal bones circa 1997-99 but the graphic was changed when bone containers were created.
    They are very rare since no one kept bones from that long ago. I have several for display next to my "Painting" without the shipwreck tag.

    I kept a bunch of mine also. I thought you got them outta chests you picked and looted ? Could be wrong.

    I kept plenty of those. :p They're all containers - if I recall, they came from the barrels in Shame. This one isn't.

    EDIT: I just noticed, as well, that the 2 pictured ones are 35 stones. All of my old bones containers are only 25 stones, iirc.

    Before there were bone containers the various bone graphics were used as drops on monster corpses, in dungeon chests, and several other places in the game. Much like the several graphics of the "fur", they were completely useless. When bone containers were created the graphic was recycled for containers only. The bones of 35 weight which were not containers simply stopped spawning. This happened around 1999? I think.

    My time frame could be off just a little but the non-container bones using that graphic went the way of the dodo a VERY LONG time ago. The rarity of the bones reflects the lack of players keeping them and the age of the item. I have seen less then a dozen on Atlantic and maybe 2 or 3 on other shards.
