What is a Curio or Relic?

I have read somewhere on this forum that to fall into this category not all non NFA firearms are classified as a curio or relic, but the ATF list the description as

1.) Firearms which were manufactured at least 50 years prior to the current date, but not including replicas
2.) Firearms which are certified by the curator of a municipal, State, or Federal museum which exhibits
firearms to be curios or relics of museum interest; and
3.) Any other firearms which derive a substantial part of their monetary value from the fact that they are
novel, rare, bizarre, or because of their association with some historical figure, period, or event. Proof of
qualification of a particular firearm under this category may be established by evidence of present value
and evidence that like firearms are not available except as collector’s items, or that the value of like
firearms available in ordinary commercial channels is substantially less.

I guess i am just confused and i would like some clearing up as to what to believe.
You can't have my guns, but you can have my bullets.
