Interesting finds in old sets
As some of you may know in addition to modern sets I also collect pre 1972 sets. For the most part these are loose, used sets when I buy them. Often when I sort these out I find some non-Lego items mixed. Normally these are other toys. I've found stickers, marbles, cars, airplanes, parts of other toys, and non-Lego building toys (mostly American Bricks). Sometime I've found more strange items: rubber bands, pins, glass, pieces of wood, screws and other hardware. The most amusing item I've found was a note. There nothing special about. Just something some friends were passing back and forth until it got left and forgotten in a bunch of Lego bricks.
My most recent find was some school work and something I'll have to be a bit coy about it. I just got a 502
set. It comes in a Loveland
style case and stuff is often under the tray, including the paper work for the set. Looking under the tray I found some boy's school report on Nepal and something else he hid there. The teacher clearly didn't like the job this young man did as he was given a C- and had a long note about the poor quality of work on the assignment and to come see the teacher about it. The other item was something, let's say is a bit more adult and something a young teenage boy would want to hid.
