Actual props featured in Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides...

Not only does Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides pit Johnny Depp's 'Captain Jack Sparrow' against zombies, mermaids and the infamous pirate 'Blackbeard', but it also features the quest for the fabled Fountain of Youth.

Included in the assortment of original props was Captain Jack Sparrow's compass, although sadly this version doesn't open, so you can't see inside.

Also included within the prop exhibit was this ornate skull adorned pistol, although until I see the film I'm unsure who it belongs to, although it looks more than just a generic pirate pistol.
