    Just curious. Mine was a WW2 American canteen. Unfortunately, I was 5 when I bought it. I used it a lot, when I played "army". I still have it, but it is in rough shape. Tell me yours. Even if it is a fake.

    My late grandfathers cap-badge was mine. He was a Serjeant Tank Commander in the Grenadier Guards.
    Still got it, along with a few other bits that were his and which I will never part with. (I have posted pics of the majority of the things that I got from him on various threads over the last few months)

    Funny. My friends use to bring their toy guns. I was the "cool" kid on the block because I had wooden toy guns, not the dollar store plastic stuff.

    I was in High School - grade 9 - and traded a solid body electric guitar I was
    in the process of building. I couldn't complete the guitar for lack of parts,
    so it lay around for a while until a guy offered me a Hindenburg cross.

    It was my first real 'collection piece'..........
