What sort of things do you collect?

I like shiny things. Embarassed Canadian coins can be very cool and sometimes they're themed, so I collect lots of those. I also really like pins. I have lots of them. I should get pictures. Thinking

I have a deceased family member's old stamp collection and a smaller one of my own... I should sort through them.

So what do y'all collect? Very Happy= :D

I collect coins, new and old. I buy rolls of pennies at the bank just because of the chance at finding some wheat pennies. Oldest Ive found in a roll was from 1911. Yes. 1911. I've found a few older Canadian pennies too. One was from 1946, I believe?

Hell, I even found an 1893 Indian Head penny in change at GameStop last year. Imagine my surprise when I got home and actually noticed it. Laughing

Pocket Watches specializing in RailRoad Watches (RRwatch get it ?) , stereo systems and speakers, tools. I've been buying mid to high end headphones lately I have about a half dozen now. I also have a closet full of Woot type Tee-shirts..... Zombies, game stuff ,software internet jokes, etc,etc..... Its kind of a trademark of mine to wear them around . I've collected music since I was a little kid almost all of it is digitized at various bit rates and quality. I have about a Terrabytes worth ....... everything from Classical to Heavy Metal. I have a few large boxes of stamps and first day issues going back to the 1930's. I have about a 100 games mostly for PS3, DS,PS2 and Wii. I have about 400 DVD movies also. I used to collect coins and comics but I gave them to my brother years back. I do have a small wooden chest filled with silver dollar and half dollars tho. I'll give them to my son or trade 'em when the Zombie infestation happens.

This may come as a shock to some of you, but I collect...video games.

I know, I know. Just can't seem to help myself. Laughing
I've got a large number of titles spanning from the NES to the PS3, with many from the systems in between. Primarily PS2 games.

A fellow coin collector? Cool

Do you have any double-stamped coins? They look really nice. Very Happy= :D

I guess I collect game T-shirts too... I have a LBP2 one, a R&C one, a R3 and a Penny Arcade one with the TF2 Heavy and Medic with a "Shoot him first" bubble beside the Medic. Laughing

I'm not sure if I collect games or not... Thinking

I can't say I do. I normally collect older/foreign coins. I don't come across errors to often. What do you collect? Any notables? O:

A couple of my favorites:
1937 Liberian Half-Cent that I found in a coinstar machine at HEB (Seriously once in a lifetime.
1893 Indian Head that I mentioned before
Older Canadian pennies have a nice design to them.

This is going to sound ridiculous... but I collect a number of things...
Well... kinda collect if you count using up unnecessarily large amounts of space over a span of several USB's, computers etc.

Screencaps from my favourite tv shows... mostly Supernatural
A bunch of Spiderman Memes
and lastly...
Extremely shitty Twilight Fanfics.... mostly because I enjoy dramatically reading them out to friends for shits and giggles. :L

Bottle caps. And for no real reason either. One of my friends needed some for a project, so I stopped throwing all of mine away and gave them to her. Then she stopped needing them but I never stopped saving them. There's a bucket in the corner of my room that I fling them all into lol

I have a post-it note in my wallet and a pen, and when I see a licence plate I write down where it's from. I have almost all of the Canadian provinces and over 30 States, and considering I've only been in BC and Washington State since I started I think I've done pretty well. Razz

I wouldn't knock the Twilight Fanfics, heard one of them became a best seller. Crap of crap sells good too apparantly.

Fifty shades of grey was once a twilight fanfic. Pretty much the author wrote a porny version of twilight then got told to take that shit down, replaced the twilight characters with their own, and now there's three of these books..

I've got the first one.. from what I've heard its... extremely detailed... and kinda crazy. Laughing

Probably shouldn't take this book with me to school though :S

RF: Hey, I still write twilight fanfics... but not smutty ones... Cool

so i guess I'm a collector of weird stories then. lololol

I find that funny, when you collect a coin that was worth probably 2 cents then it now costs a lot more. I never understood that.

1. It could be rare at this point, making it valuable that way.

2. The prices of the materials used to make it have changed. At one point it cost five cents to make a penny, so they had to change the way they made the coins.
