items you own that aren't something most people collect?

Article about: I have accidentally collected a couple of British issue survival kits / rations. The ration tin has some delicious high calorie bricks in it, as well as some very basic survival aids. SANY24

    Default items you own that aren't something most people collect?

    As a collector i like to try and find items that most people wouldn't have in their collections or wouldn't think to add to a collection and i wonder if any of you have any special little items you enjoy that perhaps most collectors wouldn't own.

    I like anything weird. Military marked dental equipment, Apple corer with a crows foot on, 1942 dated hair clippers. Like you say, anything obscure and taken for granted..... oh, got a bottle of beer from some SAS function.

    I like the R.N.P. Items (Rassemblement national populaire).
    But very hard to find.

    I have a small collection of Lotta Svärd items but I'm not sure if that is obscure enough. I also have some humorous WW2 Finnish postcards.

    As well I have a small collection of prewar Czech medals... I would like to collect Czech Legion militaria but haven't really pursued it.

    I don't want to fragment my primary areas of collecting too much... Only so much resources to go around!
