I don't collect either of the above. I do collect certain period antiques and paintings. Sorry, won't post pictures of such.

The wife would say I collect dust! As far as other collections I collect scale model trains and have a small collect of railroad artifacts.

I have about 20k Magic:The Gathering cards from when I was a Big Brother many years ago.
I also have a small collection of bolt action military surplus rifles.
Neither is convenient to photograph at this time.
Right now I'm sitting on the porch collecting mosquito bites...

I don't collect anything for collecting's sake. I have many of a couple things, though. Fountain pens, ink, pipes and tobacco. Some audio equipment that's piled up over the years from music production, performance, etc...
Seems to be a high proportion of musicians here. That's probably not a coincidence.

That's awesome Jay. I have a small collection of mosin nagant variants. When I say small I mean 14, which some people may say puts me in the 'gun nut' category, which I'm ok with.

Those Mosin Nagants are fun for a day at the range with a few bandoleers of dirt-cheap surplus ammo.

Ha. When I lived in Texas, the Army Surplus store had oodles of 7.62 in stripper clips and bandoleers. They didn't shoot for shit out of the M44 I had, but man could you blow through some ammo on a budget.

While I do not yet have much of a collection, I love fountain pens.

We have enough here to open up a shop. I not able to get down to the basement to see our stuff anymore.

7000 books

unknown amount of ceramics

thousands of comics, at least a thousand silver and golden age

Colonial, early British, ancient (various), and pirate coins

Trading cards, sports, sci-fi, auto, generally old

casino chips and tokens. Tried to visit every casino in America, but fell short when I broke my neck.
I have some fountain pens, but have not seen them since 2005... along with much else.

Like my brain, my collections are scattered. few things complete, totally disorganized. Did I say I was broke?

Kidding aside, I used to collect lighters, Zippos mostly. I still have few good ones left, will post a picture later. And as Warren, I don't collect pipes or tobacco either.
