What's the most unusual collectable you have?

Mine is a 4ft long section of hull planking off the USS Constitution. How's that for an unusual collectable?

Regards

MY grandmother gave me a little pencil box with a whole bunch of WW2 "memorabilia" One of the patches was from a German Afrika Korps uniform. Probably not too unusual, but its my most "unusual one.

Not really "collectible" (or maybe they are, I don’t know), but I have a set of Britannica Encyclopaedias from 1964 AND all the Britannicia’s “Book of the Year” and “Yearbook: Science and the Future” from 1964 to 2004!!!

They issue two books each year, one with just facts about the year, people, countries, etc., and one devoted to science and technology.

I’ll be getting my 2005 yearbook in the mail pretty soon.

Night was dark, but the sky was blue,
Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew,
Heard a bump, and somebody screamed,
You should have heard just what I seen.

About the only thing I ever collected. I guess if I had to pick one as the most unusual I would have to say Bill.

i saved spider gears from my neon when my gear box blew up. (my neon was the biggest heap ever!) and a chunk of spider gear from the rear of my thuinderbird when they flew appart.

u can see its jammed in between the ring gear and the housing for the spider gear. what a mess.

If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.
