    Do you collect things

    When I was a kid, my grandmother worked for the postal service and she started me collecting stamp. I stopped collecting stamps long ago, but then I took up coin collecting. My most valuable one is probably my 1881 morgan silver dollar, minted in carson city, last time I checked it was worth about $500.
    So what do you collect?

    I've got a couple of cool $2 bills.

    Australia and Fiji.

    Have been thinking of starting a collection of them. I think there is New Zealand and the US - not sure who else though...possibly some other Commonwealth countries.

    I used to collect bottle caps, kind of lost interest, but I still have the collection around. I also have a strange love of small containers. Little boxes, jars, etc. I have quite a collection of small wooden boxes and tins.

    Canada used to have a two dollar bill but replaced it with a coin in 1996.

    My father collected silver dollars and had quite a few. The great Oakland Fire destroyed te collection allong with the house. When I went up there to help look for stuff, I found the remains of the collection. Most of the proof sets he had delaminated. Many of the old dollars survived and we spent a day excavating for them. I retained a Morgan dollar that had warped and the surface bubbled.

    Not sure if this are considered collections but I kinda do.

    Well, I'd like to think I started collecting C&V bikes this past weekend.

    * 1988 Panasonic DX4000
    * 1984 Lotus Unique

    I also have / had a few motorcycles in the past years:

    Current:

    1990 Honda NS50F
    2001 Suzuki GSXR600
    1997 Ducati 748 Monoposto
    2012 Ducati Multistrada 1200

    Past:
    2007 Ducati Monter S2R1k
    2008 Ducati 848
    2008 Ducati S4Rs
    2010 Ducati Streetfighter
    2000 Ducati Monster 900
    2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale

    Also have a few LPs from 60-70s Rock bands

    Beatles memorabilia: LPs, Posters, cups, coasters, books, documentaries

    James bond movies: complete collection

    Watches (this one needs expansion but lack of money is a big issue) Rolex Milgaus and Breitling Chronomat Evo. Technomarine Master Chrono and Phillip Stein Signature Chrono. Almost picked up a TUDOR Fastrider but instead bought myself a powermeter.

    I think that is it... Like i said maybe not collections but they will be once I start accumulating.

    Water.
    I get a sample whenever I go somewhere new. I have about 40 samples so far all in Masson jars marked with their location. They are scattered about in my kitchen pantry. The lazy Susan has about 4 cans of soup and a sample of the Trevi fountain. The Atlantic, Pacific, Adriatic, and other major bodies are behind the Cheerios. Rivers are stacked with the glassware--it's laid out like the Dewey decimal system.

    I collect jsharr quotes. I have a feeling they'll go up in value after they die.

    After the quotes die? Or after he dies? Most artists works go way up in value after their untimely demise. Especially if they die a very sudden and unexpected death.

    After he dies. I'm hoping to find some dangerous strava segments he's KOM on so I can pay someone off to steal them away. That way he's almost certain to die in a bloody accident.
