Did you ever collecting something out of the ordinary? What was it?
Did you ever have an odd, but neat collection that might surprise people? People collect all kinds of neat things, what was your special thing?

Yes, besides U.S mint stamps, I collect vintage buttons and floaty pens. Floaty pens are ballpoint pens that have images which move in liquid. They are often travel souvenirs and promotional items. I have about 40 of them.
When I was a kid I was walking on the beach and found the skull of a puppy, so decided that I'd collect skulls as I thought they were interesting, but I only ever found one other and that was a sheep's.

I kept all the smaller ones in tiny chests made from match-boxes with round paper-fasteners for knobs, and labelled all the ones I could find names for. Now I wonder why one of my grandsons likes collecting things and is a palaeontologist!
