  • What else do you collect ?

    I have a decent coin colection at my parents place thats been around for 20 odd years , theres coins and notes from all over the world but its not really setup properly.
    Also have 4 phones from 1930s that came from family farm , I cleaned them up and god only knows what there worth these days !!
    Also have a mint condition poker machine thats estimated to be from 66-71 as its 20c and cant really be any older , not sure what thats worth either.



    Anyone else care to share some unique collections ?

    over the years as a maintenance carpenter i managed to collect / horde quite a few old items that people were throwing out.
    as a lot of this took up space it was sold off , funding most of my model collection.
    eg old white bakerlite telephone with dail that didn't work sold for $200. 5 yrs back,old travellers trunk , looked like a pirates chest sold 4 yrs back $150 etc.
    still have an old clothes iron powered by kerosine and some old airline memorabilia, small railway scales and other stuff that i have forgotten about and stored in my dads shed.
    nearly forgot about the 5 copper fire extinguishers that got me into this hobby they were sold and brought my first biante a 65e and the factory model of a fokker F27 that i swapped for a track red XYGTHO 1/18 scale

          I collect Stubby holders and Fridge magnets from places I have visited. I also collect 1/400 scale diecast airliners but I've restricted it to aircraft I have actually flown on.

          So, off to ebay to find an Air New Zealand Boeing 777-200 Model

                            I've won 2 cars on Ebay, still waiting for them to arrive. They're pretty cheap. I bought one for 19 bucks and i saw the exact same car at Sheriff's Minicars for 150.

                              I think I paid 8.00us for the blue box and somewhere around 10-12.00us mark for the yellow box.When working out total cost you must factor in postage and the conversion rate, still cheap. Buy bulk off the one seller saves a bundle on postage.
                              Most of the nascar teams change the paint styles for each race, One model from 07 may have 6 or 7 different variations, it would be a hard collection to complete and costly
