There's something simultaneously gratifying and saddening about removing boards from your house that were installed by hand with cut nails over 100 years ago...

Yes, THAT. We will buy them off you if they're in anything like usable condition, if you want to sell.

most of them are still embedded in boards, there's only 4 or 5.
I'll try to get 'em out cleanly for you. ^_^

If you want the same thing when you put them back, Longleaf Lumber is I thinkt he nearest dealer of tremont nail company cut nails. http://www.tremontnail.com/

Apparently they hold better than your contemporary nail, and still have quite the following.

It's a very small area of flooring, so I used a pneumatic nailer. Felt like a bit of an ass. *grin*

Just wait until you have to shore up a foundation that someone half-assed 150 years ago. You'll get a zeal for the new pretty dang quick.
