They would probably get looked at more than my comic books are read and they would be easy to store. I also would enjoy collecting metal lunch boxes.


A view master I picked up at a flea market in Iceland.
Three reels were bought by my wife as a present.
The Batman is still sealed so I haven't watched that one.

We ate at a restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyoming years ago called The Gun Barrel. The had a bunch of barbed wire mounted on old barn wood. I loved it. Started collecting it then.

I didn't realize there were so many different varieties of barbed wire.

That's just a drop in the bucket. There are hundreds, if not thousands.

@Darkseid_of_town I would raise you this football-sized coprolite that I use for a bathroom doorstop, but it's hard to raise when I have no other cards to play!!

Interesting specimen, most people have no concept what coprolite is amusingly ! Here are a few I have or worked with.

The first one is a roughly 20 pounder from the Henry Mountains in Utah and is a full nodule...the other is a sliced and polished "cake" a friend of mine did for me.



These knives have handles all done in dinosaur bone....recently my mother visited colorado and brought me back two large coprolites which will likely get used making a few more knives for the collection.

@Byrdibyrd @Darkseid_of_town

This is one instance where you really don’t want to collect modern variants.

Uh... 'cake-a-poo'? Sounds like a designer dog breed that I don't need to have.
