Meteorites, coins, firearms, flashlights, folding and fixed-blade knives. There's an overabundance of old electronics littering my home, too.

I bought a beautiful Allende meteorite (16.8 grams) with 90% fusion crust for $12. Going rate is about $350-$400. I also got a nice Tatahouine fragment for $0.11 (yes, eleven cents). That should have brought them $30 easily. It's no mystery why they're out of business....

Meteorite hunting interests me, but it's not practical in the northeast. Deterioration due to weather extremes makes it awfully difficult to find them on the ground.
