do you own any "rares" in real life?

Recommended Posts

Jagex may have made an effort to stop new discontinued items from coming into the game, but that's not the way it works in real life! :) That having been said, do you own any "rares" (or uncommon things you consider interesting) in real life?

 

Personally, I have a few items of interest:

 

In December 2005, a team of two professors discovered the largest known prime number through the GIMPS distributed computing project, and they did it again in September 2006, breaking the record twice. They gave away commemorative pins both times, and I was lucky enough to be a recipient both times.

Of course, the discovery of large prime numbers isn't exactly an "earth-shattering" scientific achievement unlike, say, the first manned mission to the Moon, but I still think it's pretty cool to own a piece (or two) of math history.

Not to discourage you from coming to OT, but it's a kind of unspoken rule that you don't bring up Runescape here. I get what you're going for but maybe make it less RSish and more "what cool rare things do you own"ish.

Fullmetal Alchemist, you will be missed. A great ending to a great series.

Probably a $10 bill from the 1930s. :rolleyes:

Meh the only thing like that I own is the Lord of the Rings trilogy + The Hobbit from the late 1960s. They're not really that rare but whatever, I think they're cool.

Do $2 bills count? Because I've got, like, pantloads of them. I mean, you don't even know how many.

Oh yeaahh. I have an old bayonet aswell. One my grandfather used when he was in the Army in Zimbabwe. Also have a very very old Rimington Rand type Writer. I dont think its "rare" but i think one in that condition will be hard to find.

A decent copy of Uncanny X-Men #94 (rare in itself) signed by Chris Claremont, Bob McLeod and Len Wein.

A SEGA Nomad (seriously, you never see these anywhere).

The 50 state collection of Pogs (yes, those little cardboard circles that were popular in the early 90s).

Well, I found out recently my piano was made during World War I. That's because the pieces are made with metal, and the only time pianos were made with metal rather than copper was because during World War I America took all the copper to put towards the war, so pianos had to be made with metal!

Yeah, I'm not sure what type of metal it was. This information was relayed from the piano tuner to my mom to me, and my mom isn't the best listener... Though I do know that it doesn't contain any copper in it which indicates it was made during World War I :P

Yes, I have several 100 Million and Billion denominations of Deutschmarks from the 1940s.

 

I'm an avid collector of banknotes, coins and stamps.

 

Stamps : rare Bhutanese 3-D stamps, a few Russian ones from the 50's and 60's showing all different types of missiles.

Coins : One from the East India Trading company from the mid 1800's [i cant remeber exact date], uuuhhh USD $10 coins.

Bank note: some adorned with saddam's face, and also with hitler's.

 

yeah.

 

Those are the special ones. Have a few fair many more, but nothing that immeadiatley comes to mind.

I wear a half crown from 1819 around my neck. Probably the rarest thing I own, but I couldn't be sure.

 

This is the one...
