    I found a blue VDV beret in my 6b4, maybe the seller threw it in there, but I'm happy to own it. Smile
    Also, as I'm collecting Russian stuff, there were a lot of sunflower seeds and pistachio shells.

    Over the years ,train tickets, camo neck scarf, hand written coordinates, halve eaten bar of Yorkie (MoD issue not shop bought), loads of bloody used waxy ear plugs, Beret sans a badge, money , and an adjustable spanner which I was well pleased with,and tonnes of rubbish, sweet wrappers, pens lids, halve eaten pencils, a tampon!!!!!

    Sadly I have never found anything of real financial value to cover the cost of the item !!

    Over the year, i got ammo (7.62 rounds but since it's a USA local buy so not a big deal), tickets, supermarket receipt, supermarket bag, ICA Card (Like a bank card in swedish) Freedom eagle money card, movie stud, used ladies tempon - Twice..... This is common find.

    I once found half a eaten burger inside a pouch from a UK seller......Origin of the burger is unknown...Probably a Mackey D's.
    The nastiest stuff i ever found is a Used Condom on a camo shirt pocket. (from a Japanese Buy)
    The most scary find is a jar (or rather a tube) labelled "BIOHAZARD" inside was some liquid off a used military container...
    The most delighted found was a named and serialled DSC medal felt out from the pocket of a class A uniform wheni ot it from USPS. I returned it to the rightful owner immediately after i founded out.

    I never got money out from my buy yet...

    The following i does not know whether or not it suit the topic.

    I once bought a 50 pack 9mm bullet case for reloading, but the seller mail me a factory made 9mm bullet.
    I once bought a Sniper rifle in the US and the gun was mail deliver to me with a round chambered inside.......
    I once bought a used car (caddy) and comes with a loaded .45 pistol in the glove

    Darn and blast it,that's not good Mate,I resent not being able to wear my collectables, so I fully fully understand your frustration,On a more serious note , if they were able to be resized and available in a splendid Daguet pattern, I would be interested in a trade with you Graham, I have a wonderful pair of genuine French bloomers WW2 vintage no less.One previous owner,and not too many miles on the clock. Well have a think about it, and let me know. I am rather keen to be rid of them to be honest Twisted Evil Laughing

    Oh ,before I forget they are indeed a size 14 !Smile

    Hmmm, well maybe a few , but they are historic stains and would probably add to the overall value of them, if you wished to trade them on at a later date Laughing

    Not pure gold, but also precious, these are collectible coins. My father-in-law ("I`m the law" Wink) would say more about them.

    I bought a US Woodland large assault pack this past weekend from a surplus dealer. I pulled the plastic back and padding out of the pocket and found a book of Sudoku puzzles stuffed in there.
    I'm convinced 'Sudoku' is Japanese for 'annoying number puzzle'.
